SA Wine in Ostrich Mode


The silence from well-paid SA wine industry bodies on the labour crisis in the Winelands and calls for a wine boycott by the ANC in the Eastern Cape is fast becoming a crisis itself. While scenes of Ceres going up in flames this morning (below) percolate as far as Saint-Hippolyte in Alsace, where is the leadership?

A week into the crisis and the WOSA website had not been updated in a month. FairtradeSA is silent while wild rumours about which side of the debate WIETA has positioned itself, fly around Twitter. Once again, crisis management in SA wine is sadly lacking.
