Painted Wolf Wines

Jeremy and Emma Borg founded Painted Wolf Wines to create unique wines from a small number of growers in some of South Africa’s prime sites, including Paarl, Swartland and Stellenbosch – low-yielding areas which are mostly unirrigated and farmed organically or with minimal organic outputs.

They called their company Painted Wolf, after the endangered African Wild Dog. The Painted Wolf ‘pack’ is their community of talented individuals who bring the best available grapes, technical and practical skills, resulting a range of delicious, authentic and satisfying wines.

Five percent of Painted Wolf’s profits from UK sales are donated to Tusk Trust, which not only funds projects to protect wildlife, particularly endangered species, but also helps to alleviate poverty through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities which live alongside wildlife.

KWV Wines

KWV is one of South Africa’s leading wine and spirit producers, with an impressive international reputation and history. Its new owners brought in a winemaking team led by Wim Truter.

KWV has 72 growers from every region of the Western Cape so it has unrivalled access to all of South Africa’s wine regions and grape varietals, from cool climate Walker Bay Sauvignon to hot and arid

Swartland Shiraz. Its winemakers work closely with the vineyards and the results shine a light on South Africa’s amazing regional strengths.

They champion South African classics and off-beat varieties such as Grenache Blanc, Verdelho, Cinsaut, Petit Verdot, Tempranillo and Malbec.

Their methods are innovative too: KWV has pioneered and patented technology to produce sulphur-free wines using honey bush and Rooibos tea bark. Abraham Izak Perold (Pinotage Developer) joined the KWV in 1927 and made a huge contribution to the wine industry during his time there.

Seven Springs Wines

Seven Springs Vineyard, based in the cool climate Overberg region of the Western Cape in South Africa, produces a small range of premium red and white wines. Its British owners, Tim and Vaughan Pearson, set their sights on owning a South African vineyard back in 2005 and their range is the result of all their passion and enthusiasm for the country and its wines.

Seven Springs is a 21 acre site and its temperatures are some 6 degrees lower both by day and night than those of the Stellenbosch, which coupled with the cooling Atlantic Ocean breeze, slows the ripening process, allowing the fruit to develop a great flavour profile. The result is a range of wines that stay true to the characteristics of old world grape varieties, but celebrate the best of new world fruit.

Winemaker Riana van der Merwe joined the team in 2010 and they released their first vintage in 2011, and followed this with a great vintage in 2012 which saw them scoop Decanter Gold for Syrah 2012.

Tom Cannavan thinks they’re rather special too: “This is one new South African name to watch”.

Benguela Cove Estate

Benguela Cove is a leading producer and wine destination, at the start of South Africa’s Hermanus Wine Route. Discover and enjoy the finest award-winning wines from our quality vineyards.

Benguela Cove’s vineyards benefit from the unique conditions of the estate’s location at the ocean’s edge, on the southern coast of South Africa. The south-easterly sea breeze is chilled by the Benguela Current flowing up from Antarctica, to cool the grapes at night after the warm summer days, irrigated by above-average rainfall, for perfect viniculture.

The vineyards are planted on the exposed cooler slopes of the estate and on top where there is wind. Our vineyards protect the housing development, while vineyards planted along the main road hides the residential development ensuring complete privacy.

The proximity of our vineyards to the sea and the unique slightly windy conditions shorten the shoots of the vines and make the berries and leaves smaller, thereby increasing the quality of the grapes produced. Our terroir is clay and calcium rich and there are very few farms like this in South Africa.

It is the epitome of luxury living and this fully functional wine farm has already produced multiple award-winning wines. Residents on the estate get an allocation of wine every year and at full production this will work out to be a case of wine per month (a very nice perk to have). This leads to residents having a sense of ownership without being liable or responsible for the farm. This is their wine farm in the Cape.
