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.
