Painted Wolf Wines is a dynamic and innovative South African wine company. We are dedicated to the production of authentic, distinct and delicious wines, and to the conservation of African wild dogs and their natural habitat.

Our Wines

We produce wines with a distinctive South African feel, and to that end focus largely on wines crafted from Chenin Blanc and Pinotage – the two bench mark South African grape varieties, The grapes are sourced from our pack members vineyards, which are low yielding, mostly unirrigated and farmed organically or with minimal non organic inputs.

Painted Wolves

The “Painted Wolf” (Lycaon Pictus), also known as the African Wild Dog or Painted Dog , is one of Africa’s most fascinating and highly endangered mammals. They have a highly co-operative family social structure and are extremely persistant and effective hunters. They are our inspiration. We support the conservation of this intriguing and beautiful animal with a contribution from every bottle of wine sold and through our communications.

Check out the #pinotage fermenting in the egg.
Loaded it full with whole bunches for carbonic maceration three weeks ago. Added some fermenting pinotage juice yesterday and it is now going like a rocket

Excited to be back in the cellar. Harvested incredible Mourvedre today. This is the 8th vintage of Kasteelsig mourvedre I have worked with and by a long shot the best grapes. Very high sugar and amazing colour. Check the colour in the cylinder immidiatly after crushing. My egg is now fermenting properly. It took ages for the whole bunches to begin to break down so I added a couple hundred litres of fermenting pinotage juice. This got things going. Should end up with 2 barrels of a very interesting component. Viognier is still fermenting slowly. ... See MoreSee Less

Meet Jo, yet another intern of the The Endangered Wildlife Trust's Wildlife in Trade Programme. Jo is going to be entering into training to be a wildlife crime busting dog either through tracking poachers or detecting wildlife contraband like rhino horn, ivory, cycads, etc. This week he was at Afri Guard with handler ET having various assessments done on his drive and temperament. He is a lovely boy and we look forward to sharing his progress with you.

Look at the enthusiasm! What would you call her? ... See MoreSee Less

Help us name our newest EWT working dog! The EWT has another new intern! This little lady is only five months old, but she’s already being trained to assist us in the war against wildlife crime. When she’s ready, she’ll help us to detect wildlife contraband like rhino horn, ivory, cycads and hopefully lion bones too. She’s a dainty little girl but simply can’t sit still, is super friendly, and has a HUGE enthusiasm for life! She’s pictured here with her handler and trainer, Nico van Loggerenberg from Afri Guard - this was the best picture we could get of her as she wagged her whole body furiously and couldn’t stop giving Nico lots of love. But she hasn’t got a name yet, and we’re asking for your help to choose her an awesome one! Comment with your suggested name and the EWT staff will make a shortlist of five names. We will post these and the one with the most likes will win!
