S AFRICA: The Company of Wine People changes name
The Company of Wine People will now be known as Stellenbosch Vineyards
The Company of Wine People has announced that it is changing its name to Stellenbosch Vineyards.
The South African wine producer, which changed its name in 2006, confirmed earlier today (19 March) that the name change will take immediate effect. The name had “served its purpose”, the firm said.
The Company of Wine People, which owns the Arniston Bay wine brand, was known as Omnia Wines after Vinfruco and Stellenbosch Vineyards merged in 2004.
“We are a company that has its roots in South Africa’s premier wine producing area, Stellenbosch,” said managing director Eduan Steynberg. “The name change is also symbolic of the fact that there will be a renewed focus on producing both top quality and value for money wines of origin Stellenbosch, particularly for our Welmoed and Credo labels.”
The company's website will become www.stellenboschvineyards.co.za.
