Shipping wine or spirits to South Africa?

  • All South Africa entries for 2020 (two bottles for wine, two bottles for spirits and vermouth) must be sent to Vineyard Hotel, Colinton Road, Newlands, 7700, Cape Town, South Africa. The deadline for delivery is TBC.
  • Please clearly mark all boxes as IWSC Competition, Vineyard Hotel Conference Centre.
  • However, we will also have a panel in the UK tasting wines from South Africa, to judge wines that are already in the UK.
