Leopard’s Leap Wines is delighted to announce the 2017 edition of its #Words4Wine campaign as part of its sponsorship of the annual Cape Town-based Open Book Festival.

Those who love literature, who understand the importance of reading and who have books to share, are invited to enjoy a glass of Leopard’s Leap wine in exchange for a pre-loved (or even new!) book. Too sentimental to give your books away? Purchase a voucher from The Book Lounge to exchange instead of a physical book.

Join the enthusiastic Leopard’s Leap team at the Homecoming Centre between 17:00 and 20:00 from 6 to 9 September 2017. Socialise with other festivalgoers over a glass of Leopard’s Leap wine knowing that your book contribution will make a difference.

Books will be categorised and distributed to libraries and schools in need of reading material as well as to the Open Box Library Project. These boxes are mini libraries, allowing teachers and learners access to the resource through the day, without requiring additional staff and administration. Boxes are placed in classrooms and are filled with books, games, materials for activities and other resources relevant to both teachers and learners.

“In 2016, 460 books were swopped for wine in the #Words4Wine campaign and I am sure we can do even better this year! Get involved with Cape Town’s finest literature festival and join us in making a difference! ” says Leopard’s Leap CEO Hein Koegelenberg.
