Learn about our story
Our spirit and story is depicted in our icon, the three sails. The “age of sail” brought about the “age of discovery” and goods from far off lands.
We are following in this tradition and bringing wines that we love, enjoy, and want to share direct from Cape Town, South Africa to our base in New Orleans, Louisiana. From the southern tip of Africa to The South, we are South to South Wine Importers.
South to South Wine Importers is a passionate, established wine import and distribution business sailing proudly from the Cape of Good Hope to The Big Easy.
“South Africa’s rich array of high-quality wines awaits to be discovered. With the numerous small labels and a range of varieties showcasing the country’s diverse terroir, this is the time to start exploring South African Wine”
– James Molesworth – Wine Spectator –
The mission behind us
Our mission is to make great South African wines readily accessible to wine lovers in Louisiana and the South. Patriotism and pride in our South African heritage are what inspire our business.
We Southerners, albeit from different continents, know what hospitality and generosity are all about. We want to share the wines we love with those we love in a place we love. We relish our unique culture and heritage, both in the South of Africa, and in the South of the US.
South is a special place.
We will introduce you to delicious new wines, from beautiful far-away vineyards, made by talented passionate winemakers.
You are invited to join us on a journey of discovery and connection, from South to South.
“South Africa offers perhaps more variety and diversity
than any other wine-growing country.”
