law graduate, Rainer has had a long standing fascination and
involvement in the international wine industry. He is a member
of a family of winegrowers from Ingelheim in the Rheinhessen
region of Germany, was the marketing director for one of South
Africa's largest wine companies, and founded the Diners Club
Wine Society in South Africa. In 1993, Rainer established Cape
Vintners International (CVI), a leading import and export
consists of wine buyers, logistics partners, wine tasters (
thats the fun part ! ) and a number of key support staff who see
to your effortless and hassle-free world wide shipping.
has specialised in assisting visitors to the Cape with the
logistics of getting the wine back home.
Rainer’s advice is to taste all the wines whether at
wineries, on the wine estates or in restaurants, note the wine
and when back home order your favourite selections and CVI will
take care of the rest.
economical way is to order a pallet, which is approximately 360
bottles. The price for the shipment to most parts of Europe to
the nearest large city costs approximately 1 Euro per bottle.(
Twelve bottles, air freighted, will cost you approximately €
200!!!) It takes a little longer but the reward of opening
bottles of South African wines for some time to come is
enormous. You have the added bonus that most top-end wines are
seldom, if ever, available in Europe and indeed when they are
they cost substantially more.
So taste, sip,
swirl and take notes during your visit, return home, order the
wines, pay in Rands excluding 14% VAT and enjoy some SA sunshine
many times over!
