19 Sep Success for Tread Lightly

tllarge Naturally, when we launched our new Tread Lightly by Backsberg brand at the end of July there were some concerns over how consumers would react, given that this was the first time wines had been bottled in PET, in South Africa. There have now been two significant milestones in the life of the brand.
