South Africa’s coveted Veritas Gold and Double Gold medal winning wines and brandies will now be available for easy ordering and – if you live in South Africa or has a friend there – delivery on your/their doorstep thanks to a new, specially developed app for online wines sales.
The initiative is believed to be a first in the world of wine competitions.
Started in 1991, The Veritas Awards give recognition to wines and brandies of exceptional quality.
The app for online sales has been made possible by a collaboration between the organisers – the SA National Wine Show Association (SANWSA) – and its long-standing financial partner CTP Packaging.
South African consumer has shown a major swing in favour of online purchasing, including wine, as a result of Covid-19 restrictions.
The wine- and brandy-buying public can download the dedicated VinoVeritas App on their smartphones or PCs, access the results and immediately order of the 198 products that won Gold or Double Gold at the 2020 Veritas Awards.
A prospective wine buyer will be able to simply download the app, register and then place orders from 20:00 – South African Time – on 14 November 2020 – when the Veritas results will be released.
An accompanying promotion for wine and brandy lovers who register on the VinoVeritas app is that on a daily basis to 14 November, one lucky winner will win a six-bottle case of the Veritas winners, as well as a grand prize of two seats for the Veritas award luncheon on 14 November.
To download, search for and register on the VinoVeritas app, go to Google Play or the Apple App Store on your mobile to explore the awards, search the wines and order them straight from the App. You will also have access to social media feeds and be able to browse further relevant information. The Veritas website will also feature two icons to click on for direct access to the App for registration.
