South African Wine Importers
South African Wines Importer, Africape Wines, was originally established in 2002 by Tiaan Strauss who was a representative rugby union player for both South Africa and Australia.
He won 15 caps for the Springboks between 1992 and 1994. He was selected for the Wallabies a total of 11 times playing his final game in the world cup quarter final of 1999 before returning to settle back in Stellenbosch in the Western cape.
Today the Australian operations are handled by the Managing Director, Stephen Schofield, who joined Africape in 2009 after emigrating from South Africa. Stephen has many year's experience in the wine industry and is passionate in seeing the base of South African wines increase in Australia.
The Africape team has expanded over the last few years to allow us to keep up with the ever increasing demands for our wines and we now have a professional team in place to ensure that the services we offer nationally are as good as the wines we sell.
We have offices in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and through this national network we can offer a premium service to our customers in all of these territories.
South Africa is the world’s largest producer of Pinotage, a varietal that most Australians have not yet tasted and this along with our great Chenin Blanc’s are among the key focuses of the Africape team.
We have identified online opportunities within Australia and have selected a few key players to sell our range online as we felt it was important to ensure those selected were reputable and had the same professional customer focus that we have.
Africape Wines is today the largest independent importer of Quality South African wines, beers and ciders into Australia.
We look forward to being of service to you!
