What We Stand ForSouth Africa has over 300 years of wine-making history. The country is recognised globally for offering impressive styles and tastes. This is due to South Africa’s transformative approach to the art, the development of its own cultivars and diverse growing landscapes that include world-famous vineyards in places like Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl, Elgin, and others. Our wines are a tribute to those who came before us but we have crafted a unique range that represents new and exciting creativity to South African wine.
What We Stand ForWe recognise the responsibility we have, not only to the land on which our grapes grow, but also to everyone who works in the production of our exceptional wines, and the customers who choose them over many others. We’re producers who truly take care of our vineyards, their soil and surrounds, we appreciate the efforts of our farmers and genuinely care about the individual interests of all of our teams. For us, it’s important to work together towards providing maximum responsible input to ensure that our output is nothing but the best for everyone in our family. We truly appreciate the opportunity to give our consumers a taste of our honest love for life.

What We Stand ForWe love wine as much as we love life. For us, making wine is about creativity and optimism – the unique art of transforming a small round fruit into something else entirely. The work we do provides us with a deeply gratifying life. We love the land, we love the vineyards and we love working with our remarkable teams who create magic in a bottle. Our unique blends embrace a lot of life's fun, and the result can be tasted in every bottle.

01South African Wine

The South African wine industry has gone from strength to strength, both in production volume, exports and quality over the last 20 years. Today, South Africa exports almost 50% of its wine.
The famous Cape Winelands are recognised for its Mediterranean climate, mountain slopes and valleys which form the ideal habitat for wine grapes. Long, sun-drenched summers and mild, wet winters offer favourable conditions for the production of varied and excellent quality varietals.

02South African Wine Accolades

South African wines consistently stand out at large and influential international wine awards and our vineyards are among some of the most celebrated across the globe.
Not only do we beat international competitors because of our stunning landscapes that boast both majestic mountains and sea views, but the quality of the wine South Africa produces is recognised by expert wine judges, including Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers, as best in class.

03Making South African Wine For The World

We know that the experience of fine wine is fundamentally personal and even emotive – it’s
attraction is centred around exclusivity, aspiration and quality, but most importantly, personal preference, which includes fun.
Our philosophy is to pick the best our South African vines have to offer and create exciting, unique and special wines that help our drinkers celebrate life the way they want to, whoever they are, and however they love most.
