Silvana Dantu and Shareen Parker have blazed a trail through uncharted territory with Zari Sparkling Grape, their non-alcoholic beverage brand in a premium corked bubbly and screw-cap lifestyle bottle. A delightful rosé Zari-tini “baby cham” and crisp, dry bubbly will soon be released. The innovation continues! 


The pioneering duo who had created African Equations (PTY) Ltd, a leading tourism development, media and events management company in 1998, identified the gap for an alcohol-free beverage that would cater to the discerning halaal and sober-lifestyle markets -- and which would surpass beverages in this category, in quality and presentation!

Over 100 corked, blended and concentrate grape juice brands were tasted and tested. The result was well worth the effort: the creation of Zari Sparkling Grape - a premier cold-pressed, 100% pure product made from the Cape Muscat Seedless grape cultivar -- undiluted, luxuriant and delicious!

The design of the signature Zari decorative vine followed ~ in metallic gold and silver and featuring delightful indigenous creatures of the Cape Winelands. The cork, wire and foil closure bring bubbly drinking rituals to non-alcohol markets – and the convenient screw-cap is ideal for everyday functions.

The name ZARI ~ derives from the gold or silver thread woven through luxurious Middle Eastern silks ~ and speaks to the superior quality of a premium product.

 Zari Sparkling Grape, the non-alcoholic game-changer ~ beautiful inside and out ~ was ready for the market. 

 And two proudly South African women are truly delighted to present it to you!
