REMARKABLY PERSISTENT, PERSISTENTLY REMARKABLE

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: THE DEN

A social wine to be enjoyed with friends and family. Named for THE DEN, the heart of the Wild Dog community. Flavour packed, soft and juicy comfort wines for every day drinking.

OUR WINES: PELOTON

A pack of Wild Dogs and a pack of cyclists share the same goal. Whether it is food for the pack or the end of a long road, what remains is the bond between pack members and the ability to unwind and enjoy the company. Company made all the more enjoyable by sharing a good wine, a love of wide open spaces and the Wild Dogs who roam them.

OUR WINES: THE PACK

High quality wines carefully hand crafted from our Pack members’ organic or sustainably farmed grapes including single vineyard wines named after the vineyard owners

OUR WINES: PICTUS

Named after Lycaon Pictus, the scientific name for Painted Wolf. Each edition of this deluxe Rhone style blend is as rare and beautiful as the Wild Dogs we support. Each year we choose a painting from one of our pack artists to feature on the label and each year we match estimated Wild Dog numbers with the number of bottles we produce

WANDERINGS

WILD DOGS

Painted Wolves are Southern Africa’s rarest predator. Their numbers have been reduced in the wild to between 5500 and 7000 dogs, of which there are only viable (considered to be sustainable) populations in four countries – South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Botswana.

They are a key species whose success in an area is an indication of the general health of that area. This makes them the most worthy of all Southern African carnivores to focus conservation efforts upon. They do not do at all well in compromised environments.
