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 pack wanders the world presenting our wines, raising funds for conservation and hosting interesting events. Take a look at our events calendar to keep track of our movements.
Painted Wolves or African wild dogs are Southern Africa’s rarest and most endangered African mammal with between 5500 and 7000 dogs remaining in the wild. Their long term survival is pivotal to the natural balance in the wilderness.
They have many conservation challenges and besides this they are charismatic, altruistic, persistent, social, elusive, inquisitive and playful.
