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.

The Endangered Wildlife Trust would be delighted if you would join us for: Captive Cheetahs and Lions in South Africa: Exotic Pets, Volun-tourism and Canned Hunting Presented by Dr Kelly Marnewick – Manager of the EWT’s Carnivore Conservation Programme Tuesday the 2nd of February 2016 During 2015 carnivores have been the talking point in the press and social media – including Cecil the Lion, the tourist killed by a captive Lion and several maulings by captive Cheetahs. In South Africa we have more carnivores in cages that anywhere else in Africa and possibly the world. But what is the impact of this on conservation of the species? What role do these facilities play in conservation and restoration? We will discuss the welfare issues for the animals, the links to canned hunting and the Lion bone trade as well as the exotic pet trade. Additionally, we will look at the risks that tourists face when visiting these facilities. Finally we will discuss what is needed to conserve Lions and Cheetahs in South Africa and the role that tourism can play in conservation. If you have visited a captive facility, petted a Cheetah or bottle fed a Lion cub, or if you plan to do so in future, please join us for this talk. .
