Cape Town – Wine industry body VinPro on Tuesday said that it was difficult to “accurately determine” the economic impact of the Western Cape fire which ravaged the Simonsberg region last week.

VinPro spokesperson Edo Heyns told Fin24 that it was presently not possible to put a rand value on the damage wrecked by the fire.

The fire, which started on January 19 was only brought under control four days later on January 22 and caused significant damage to the vineyards of several well-known wine estates.
