Standard Bank is proud to have been associated with the Juliet Cullinan Standard Bank Wine Festival for 17 years. Wine making remains a fine South African tradition and an important sector to this country. Along with our wine makers, the success of this Festival is certainly testament to Juliet’s incredible passion for wine. We thank her for all that she has done to promote South African wines, both locally and abroad.
This year, as we unveil the timeless treasure of winemaking, we trust that you will enjoy learning more about this great art form, rediscover old favourites and delight in a few new finds.
Standard Bank has been a leading sponsor of the arts and culture in South Africa for many years and we value our relationship with the wine industry. This sponsorship creates an ideal opportunity for us to engage with you, our clients, while supporting the growth of a key industry. We recognise the importance of a variety of cultural and art forms in South Africa and we appreciate the continued strength of our partnerships with the Joy of Jazz Festival, the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown and our Standard Bank Young Artists programme.
Join me in a toast to Juliet and the fine wine makers. And thank you to all our new and loyal supporters of the Festival – we wish you a memorable evening.
