Amorim Cork partners with Cape Wine 2015

Amorim Cork, the world’s leading supplier of cork products, will be pulling out all stops at this year’s Cape Wine 2015, South Africa’s leading international wine showcase held every three years.

Besides sponsoring the informative Speaker’s Corner section of the Exhibition Hall in the Cape Town Convention Centre, Amorim also hosts the Cap Classique Challenge Awards on the Monday before the opening of the event. Further to this, a revolutionary new Amorim product will be launched on Wednesday 16 September.

According to Joaquim Sá (top image), MD of Amorim South Africa, the association with Cape Wine 2015 is a tremendous strategic opportunity for the international cork company.

“I can’t think of any wine consuming country who will not have representatives at Cape Wine, and all of South Africa’s leading producers will be present to show what the country has to offer,” says Sá. “As proud partners of this industry which deserves a place among the world’s foremost wine producing nations, Amorim is privileged to be given the opportunity of strategically aligning ourselves with Cape Wine.

“Looking at the interesting array of topics held daily in the Amorim Speaker’s Corner, the audience is definitely going to leave the event looking at Brand Wine South Africa in a totally new light.”

Antonio Amorim, President of Amorim Cork based in Portugal, will be travelling to South Africa to represent the company at Cape Wine as well as the Cap Classique Challenge Awards function and the product launch.

“This year marks the 14th consecutive year Amorim is sponsoring the Cap Classique Challenge, and by holding the event on the eve of Cape Wine many of the world’s wine media, sommeliers and trade representatives will not only be introduced to Cap Classique, but will also see the reverence the industry affords these fantastic sparkling wines,” says Sá.

“It is a unique opportunity for Amorim and the relevant producers, one all of us are going to grab with both hands.”
