Stellenbosch Vineyards Logistics Hub Inauguration – 5 March 2020
Stellenbosch Vineyards, owned by French wine leader Advini, inaugurated their brand-new Logistics Hub. The facilities were officially opened by Doug Smollan, Stellenbosch Vineyards shareholder, Antoine Leccia, Advini President, and Aurélien Lechevallier, French Ambassador to South Africa.
Leading Stellenbosch wine producer, Stellenbosch Vineyards, suffered a major tragedy in October 2018 when a fire broke out in the warehouse which stored just over three million bottles of Stellenbosch wine.
The facilities - which has now been completed after construction started in August 2019 - will serve as the logistics hub for Advini South Afica and providing storage and services to the Stellenbosch wine industry.
According to the French Ambassador to South Africa, Aurélien Lechevallier:
“Advini South Africa has illustrated the value of collaboration and how the ties between France and South Africa can support a company and its people to bounce back, after what was indeed a tragedy.”
