PIWOSA which launched earlier this year will return to the UK for the Beautiful South tasting.

PIWOSA Members

Although not releasing “new” wines, the group is a new initiative for the country. Composed of 15 of South Africa’s leading independent wineries, they are seeking to “lead the charge” for premium South African wines.

Chairman, Rollo Gabb, said: “The Beautiful South is an exciting ‘first’ for the UK wine industry with its collaboration between three generic bodies representing three exceptional wine producing countries – Chile, Argentina and South Africa. “So it is fitting that we are collaborating at this event too.  We are proud to be showing our wines at a generic tasting under the PIWOSA banner for the first time- it is great to see how much can be achieved by joining forces.”

The group includes many well known names, including Journey’s End, Paul Cluver, Ken Forrester and Jordan Wine Estates.
