Leopard’s Leap announces #Words4Wine for 2018


Leopard’s Leap Wines is delighted to announce the 2018 edition of its #Words4Wine campaign as part of its sponsorship of the annual Cape Town-based Open Book Festival.

Those who love literature, who understand the importance of reading and who have books to share, are invited to enjoy a glass of Leopard’s Leap wine in exchange for a pre-loved (or even new!) book to fill the Leopard’s Leap book shelf at the festival. Too sentimental to give your books away? Purchase a voucher from The Book Lounge to exchange instead of a physical book.

Join the enthusiastic Leopard’s Leap team at the Fugard Theatre, Homecoming Centre between 17:00 and 19:00 from 5 to 8 September 2018. Socialise with other festivalgoers over a glass of Leopard’s Leap wine knowing that your book contribution will make a difference.

Books will be categorised and distributed to libraries and schools in need of reading material as well as to the Open Box Library Project. These boxes are mini libraries, allowing teachers and learners access to the resource through the day, without requiring additional staff and administration. Boxes are placed in classrooms and are filled with books, games, materials for activities and other resources relevant to both teachers and learners.

“Sometimes we are overwhelmed by our country’s challenges, but when we become involved, even in a small way, we can make a big difference. By just sharing a pre-loved book, you can help those in need of good reading material – and we all know how important reading is! Join the Leopard’s Leap Open Book Festival #Words4Wine campaign and let’s make a difference! ” says Leopard’s Leap CEO Hein Koegelenberg.
