Divine Intervention Wine

Wine is complicated, with over 4500 labels available in South Africa alone. On behalf of our clients, we select the most appropriate wines according to customer profiling, seasons, location and food offering. The process is traditionally conducted via a Blind Tasting.

- Obtaining samples from the industry under specific price guidelines and potential cultivar offerings.

- Selection of appropriate number of wines for our blind tastings

- Having selected a panel of approximately 10 industry professionals and venue management staff, we conduct a full blind tasting with scoring at every round. Averages are calculated and then the labels are revealed, with an ensuing discussion.

- The blind tasting process ensures we select the best possible wine, guaranteeing the best support, relationship and marketing opportunities that benefit both parties

- Our mandate is to protect the suppliers' interests to ensure a minimum term of listing and highest possible ROI for the farm.

Divine Intervention Events

Our business and our extensive connection database in the sponsorship and supplier industry often lead to Divine Intervention being approached to assist with sponsorship of large events in South Africa.

Divine Events has worked closely with many big - up to 20 000 - events as well as smaller charity and fundraising NGO initiatives. We assist with stock and infrastructure requirements as well as negotiate pouring right status on all beverages for the events. With the brands' best interest at heart, we promote appropriate brand activations, displays and perfect serve scenarios. We manage this entire process while cementing future relationships.

We have worked with Madame Zingara Tour (art and dining), MCQP (SA's largest pink parade), DSTV Delicious Festival (food and local/international music), Kings of Chaos (international rock music), Rocktober (intimate annual fundraising event), Bachelor and Bachelorette South Africa (charity fundraising event) and Maserati Cape to Rio (international ocean racing).

Divine Intervention Venues

We form an integral part in ensuring the right sponsorship support from the suppliers in the beverage industry for the venues. From group corporations to individual restaurant sites, we analyse branding opportunities, procure pouring rights status and address activation needs. Our existing clients include:

Ocean Basket Group - Holistic approach. Franchise operators support the appropriate beverage offering with financial support from suppliers. Integral in Ocean Basket plan is the implementation strategy of marketing endeavours nationally and regionally to offer the best value to customers with staff incentives, stock deals and customer interaction.

Harbour House Group - A massive growth operation needs the versatility to create immediate offerings as new stores and new brands are continuously opening. It also needs to continue to offer its suppliers ROI on their products. We oversee this process while protecting the value of each store within its community.

Madame Zingara - a hugely exciting project to be involved in, with two different facets: one being the extraordinary Celebration Tour of the travelling tent and the second being the continued success of their 6 restaurants in Cape Town.
