Monika Elias, founder of The Klink Awards says, “We know that as South Africans we are spoilt for choice when it comes to things to try, see and do, this makes you - the wine tourist and travel explorer - the perfect judge to rate and review the wine industry’s tourism endeavours. As we embrace the new digital age, we want to showcase - on our #SliceofSA platform - the great wine farms and some of the most unique eateries and restaurants that rival good food and wine experiences.

“Also, new to the Klink Awards is the exciting top food and wine experiences you can look forward to this year, these POP^KLINK experiential events will bring the winelands to you in a pop up market to enjoy socially first-hand! We have also created a KLINK CLUB, when you register as a KLINK CLUB member, you get access to special offers, vouchers, giveaways – so you can experience the latest and greatest of food and wine all year-round.” You can register here to become a KLINK CLUB member:
