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.

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.

Emma’s report from Kagoshima and Taiwan
It was a whirlwind four days in Kagoshima in the far South of Japan, where our importer Homboshoten is based. It took over 30 hour’s door to door, and I barely had a chance to take in the famous volcano across the bay as we…
The pack pow – wow in Paarl
