Where
Plettenberg Bay

Why was it started?
Creating an empowerment vehicle for the local communities in and around the Plettenberg Bay wine of origin region

Date started
2004

How was it done?
Through the creation of the Vukani Trust, which receives a percentage of the wine sales, various projects have been enabled, including the training and development of local farmers in viticulture and winemaking, in readiness for the establishment of a community wine farm co-operative. A joint venture with Bramon Wine Estate to build a cellar will facilitate the growth of the Plettenberg Bay wine industry, creating a sustainable income for the local community and expanding job creation.

Social and Economic Implications
Through the trust the workers are empowered financially and through education
