Based in the famous Western
Cape wine region of South Africa, Stormhoek is a wine with a big thirst for
adventure. Returning for the second consecutive race as Official Wine Partner, the
race’s intrepid crew and supporters will sample a variety of Stormhoek’s wines
at race arrival celebrations and official events around the world.
From the “Cape of Storms”, Stormhoek has braved the elements just like Clipper Race crew members, and celebrates the friendships that are made, whenever life is lived.
“Just like the Clipper Race, Stormhoek Wines celebrate life and the idea of dreaming big and being brave. We believe everyone has extraordinary abilities within themselves and that by coming together, through huge adventures like the Clipper Race, we can discover what makes life worth living,” said Bernard Fontannaz MD of Stormhoek Wines.
During its debut as Official Wine Partner in the tenth edition race, Stormhoek engaged with crew and supporters and the Stormhoek Social Spirit Award was introduced. The award celebrated the individual team spirit on board and allowed all-important support networks ashore to directly contribute to the experience by nominating teams for the award throughout the race via the Stormhoek Wines Facebook page, which saw a 74 per cent increase in social media interactions.
There is no doubt that Stormhoek Wines jump out at you when on the wine shelf. With fun and inspiring designs, you can’t help but notice their bright bottles. As Wine Partner, no fewer than 3,604,356 bespoke Clipper Race design bottles of Stormhoek Wine were delivered to countries around the world. This year 100,000 bottles of its iconic Clipper 2017-18 Race Branded Range will feature on the shelves of UK supermarket giants Tesco and Waitrose.
