With 23 years’ experience in the wine industry, we have come to realize how much winemakers despise doing all the paperwork linked to the winemaking process. Understandably really-they are artists after all and therefore not often strong on administration! Incorrect completion of wine paperwork can lead to hefty fines by SARS and for most smaller producers, it just is not viable to employ a full time person to complete it. Hidden Gems offers hourly wine consulting for the following tasks:

  • Stock take of bulk and bottled wine
  • Completion of all Sawis records
  • Completion of all Excise records both manually and on sarsefiling
  • Logistics linked to dry goods, bottling and labelling
  • Pastel or Xero accounts up to Trial Balance
  • Export documentation to be completed for freight forwarders
  • Application for Euro 1 certification
  • Applications for a potential new producer
  • Preparation for sawis and excise audits
