Top 10 Title Partner

Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most planted vines in South Africa and has drawn attention internationally due to the new methods and tastes that have emerged from South Africa. Given this innovative culture, it’s no surprise that Sauvignon Blanc SA has established a Top 10 Title Partnership with FNB, SA’s Best Business Bank (as voted by The Sunday Times top brands survey 2019).

At FNB we see Sauvignon blanc as having a significant market share and potential for growth. When approached to financially support the FNB Sauvignon Blanc SA Top 10 we saw it as a straightforward decision to back a winner.

  • The competition firstly highlights the cultivar amongst competitors, locally and overseas.
  • Secondly, it provides a platform for winemakers to stack up their wines against the best in the country, i.e. it promotes the pursuit of excellence and for the winners, it gives recognition to the winemaker and the brand which provides for a marketing edge locally and overseas.
  • Thirdly, FNB as part of FirstRand Bank Ltd is arguably the biggest financial institution in agriculture and the wine industry is seen as a growth industry.

By sponsoring the FNB Sauvignon Blanc SA Top 10, the wine industry, the winemakers and FNB all come out winners.

Sauvignon Blanc is a great example of the complexity and diversity of our wines, and likewise, FNB offers innovative financial services and tailored loans that assist producers with developing new vineyards and increasing production. The FNB expansion loan is a good example, perfect for financing infrastructure with a productive lifespan longer than a year, for instance establishing a vineyard.
