Jaydex Distribution (Pty) Ltd launches it first “Ghosts of the Future” wine label. This proudly South African brand brings the famous South African Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc to market. As part of our responsible drinking, drinking for a cause campaign, we have entered into a pledge agreement with the Mark Boucher Foundation, www.insafehands.co.za. As the main beneficiary, the foundation will receive R10 from each bottle sold towards the foundation’s Rhino saving initiatives.
Background to this initiative:
Inspired by the artwork of European artist Eugenia Chapman Campbell to create awareness towards Rhino poaching, the wine Ghosts of the Future Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc wines were realised. This showcases the first of six different wine ranges to be produced by the Imbuko Wine farm in Wellington, Cape Town towards saving our wild life.
We decided on Mark Boucher’s “Rhino’s in safe hands” because of his commitment and dedication to become a leading force in the crucial need to protect our wildlife heritage that is currently being threatened by the scourge of rhino poaching, by contributing to the growth and sustaining of the critical rhino DNA database operated by the University of Pretoria’s Faculty of Veterinary Science’s Genetics Laboratory (VGL) in Onderstepoort, established in 2010.
To date: +/- 10 000 black and white rhino are now on the RhODIS (Rhino DNA Index System) database from all over Africa. Countries in Africa with rhino who are involved in registering their rhino’s (South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi)
