A certification seal appears on each container of wine or estate brandy which has been certified by the Wine and Spirit Board. This seal is a guarantee of origin, vintage and variety as stated on the wine label.

It is also a guarantee that the wine complies with IPW criteria.

To verify information, enter the two unique numbers on the seal:

 
 

If you still have queries, please contact who are able from these two numbers to track the wine all the way to the vineyard(s) from which it originated.

Other information: The 'A' number is found on the label of both certified and uncertified wines, and provides information on the responsible seller.

Any wines not made to the certified IPW standards will continue to use the original Wine of Origin seal.

   

Sustainable Wine South Africa (SWSA) is the alliance between the Wine and Spirit Board (WSB), the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) scheme, the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI) and Wines of South Africa (WOSA).

Together these organisations are driving the South African wine industry's commitment to sustainable, eco-friendly production.

By considering the consequences of how we grow and make our wine, and thinking ahead for the next generations, we’re not just making better wine – we’re also making wine better.
