'Bitter Grapes' doccie causes ripples in Denmark

24 October 2016 1:26 PM
Swedish documentary about treatment of workers on Cape wine farms sees South African wines being pulled form shelves in Denmark.

A documentary entitled Bitter Grapes - Slavery in the Vineyards, produced by Danish filmmaker Tom Heinemann was broadcast in Denmark and Sweden this past week.

Some supermarkets in Denmark have removed South African wines off their shelves. The move follows the screening of this documentary which focused on the working conditions of farm workers in South Africa.

The short film also included the destitute livelihood farm workers in South Africa are exposed to.

Christo Conradie of VinPro Wine Cellars Manager responded to the film in a discussion with CapeTalk's Koketso Sachane.

Listen below to Conradie's version of how the industry works...
