ABOUT US

In 2006, Emma and Jeremy Borg decided to create a wine company with two main aims – to raise money to build a more hopeful future for endangered African wild dogs and to allow Jeremy to pursue his ambitions as a winemaker, which he has done with great determination and flair.

Creating the company involved many wonderful collaborations with friends from all walks of life, and over the years, with the help of these exceptional people, Painted Wolf Wines has grown to become a leading producer of award-winning wines. We now have three distinctive and memorable ranges, are never afraid to try something a little bit off the beaten track, and have donated over R4m to African wild dog and related conservation projects.

We produce unique high quality wines with distinctive South African character. Our focus is on Chenin Blanc and Pinotage, the two benchmark South African grape varieties, & individualistic Cape blends. We also make great value wines from other varietals, especially Shiraz & Rhone cultivars that thrive in our warm climate conditions. We source some of the best grapes from carefully selected vineyards, and have achieved multiple international and local accolades and awards for our wines.

Our vision is to be the leading conservation wine company in the world, producing remarkable, and highly desired wines to generate impactful funding for securing a sustainable future for African wild dogs, and for community-based conservation and related causes.

“I like to work in harmony with each batch of grapes which we harvest. There are no recipes for wine making at Painted Wolf. Each vineyard and vintage provides us with grapes which are slightly different. The taste, feel, size, colour and sugar levels of each unique parcel of grapes drives my wine making decisions. I like to use the natural yeast found on the skins of grapes as this helps in defining a sense of place for the wines, and I use wood in a restrained manner to avoid dominating the fruit. Mostly I look for balance and vivacity in my wine.”
