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.

Painted dog pup sculpture. I'm delighted to say that the two painted dog pup sculptures I recently donated to the Painted Dog Research Trust auction has raised over $6,000! The evening raised $40,000 in total which will help them to buy a drone for wild dog monitoring. Well done! nickmackmansculpture.co.uk/tag/wild-dog
