The Stellenbosch Wine Festival Foundation is the official beneficiary of the Stellenbosch Wine Festival presented by Pick n Pay.
The Foundation offers top-up bursaries, mentorship and internship opportunities to disadvantaged and promising young people from Stellenbosch whose parents work within the local wine industry.
The programme is administered in conjunction with the Words Open Worlds (WOW) programme of the University of Stellenbosch who assist in selecting the students and provide an important support function.
To enable, empower and mentor the future generation of Stellenbosch to contribute to the progression of Stellenbosch with an understanding of the history, heritage and strands that define the region.
From the direct support of the Stellenbosch Wine Festival to the Foundation we have successfully been able to contribute in excess of R500 000 over the past four years positively impacting the lives of many students.
