Is Fine Wine Ready for Africa?

January 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Africa is one of the world’s largest and most diverse continents, with more than 54 countries, rich cultures, and hundreds of ethnic groups speaking a total of more than 2,100 languages. Finding the right approach for fine wine is going to be both an opportunity and a challenge.

We are pleased to be joined by three panelists:

– Dr. Edo Heyns, Strategic Development and Marketing Director, AdVini South Africa

– Chinedu Rita Rosa, CEO and founder, Vines by Rosa, Bordeaux, France

– David White, General Manager Southern Africa and Marketing Director Africa Middle East, Moët Hennessy

Major themes to be addressed:

  • How can we come to terms with such a complex and varied continent?
  • Where are the major opportunities, and what are the challenges, for luxury products in Africa?
  • How will designers and creators from Africa impact the rest of the globe in the coming years and why is it so crucial to understand?
  • What does fine wine mean, and for which African consumers?

This Insight Series is free and open to all but places are limited.
