The South African wine-industry has reiterated its call for Government to allow the sale of alcohol over weekends and after 17h00 daily.
Vinpro, a company that represents 3,500 wine-producers, cellars and other industry stakeholders, says the current restrictions on wine-sales will contribute to thousands of job losses across the industry.
Communications Manager at Vinpro, Wanda Augustyn, says the industry is currently loosing thousands of Rand in revenue, on a weekly basis.
Augustyn says lifting the sales-restrictions will help boost the industry’s revenue.
@Vinpro_za has been pushing very hard the last three weeks to get the ban on sale of alcohol over weekends lifted as part of the whole industry that is affected. @RicoBasson says the are in high level in discussions regularly and working 24/7 to address it. #LBWwine-webinaar pic.twitter.com/6lvgcmi5rA
