Neethlingshof Doubles The Pleasure In Book Month

September is Book Month at Neethlingshof and the principle that double life’s pleasures, provide more than double the delight, has been applied to their Book Month Facebook competition that carries a weekly wine and book hamper prize for five entrants and a major prize valued at R5 000.

The competition aims to promote a connection between wine and books similar to that enjoyed with wine and food pairing.

Every week Neethlingshof uploads a video on their Facebook page, in which they pair one of their wines with a South African author or book. Page visitors are invited to answer a question about the clip and enter the competition for a chance to win a weekly wine and book hamper. All entries are automatically entered into a major prize draw for ‘The Ultimate Wine and Book lover’s hamper’ at the end of the competition – 18 September.

The first clip paired Neethlingshof’s Pinotage with author Deon Meyer whose unique South African origins make them a perfect pair.

Books have become a major theme at Neethlingshof and in recognition of the Estate’s rich heritage and the many stories of events in its long history, a range of wines called The Short Story Collection has been created, each with a tale related to the Estate.

‘The book and wine pairing competition with its grand prize of a Gobi e-reader, R1 000 book voucher, book light and a case of Neethlingshof Cabernet Sauvignon, affirms Neethlingshof’s move to promote pleasure in books and wine,’ says Neethlingshof brand manager Global Marketing Manager Anabelle Fouché.
