Great wine is made in the vineyard.
That’s why we farm side by side with nature - not against it. After all, sustainable winemaking is a team effort. Made with an environmentally mindful approach, each Vineyard Friends wine is inspired by the unique creatures of the Cape and the special role they play in our winemaking story.
Shy and surreptitious by nature, the Grey Duiker mixes through compost and fynbos in the soil with its hooves, munching on insects as it goes. Zippy and light with a fresh, fruit salad finish, this wine honours the small African antelope - a zesty character that is equally as refreshing in spirit.
Cape Grey Mongoose
Intelligent and playful, the Cape Grey Mongoose is charming to watch, feeding off insects and burrowing in the vineyards. Well-balanced, fruity and wonderfully easy-drinking, this wine honours the small, bushy-tailed Mongoose - a friend of the vineyard that is both big on attitude and surprisingly dynamic.
With keen foraging skills, the Bat-Eared Fox is our ally, removing unfriendly pests with a more nuanced and natural approach. Generous with hints of dark fruit and chocolate, this wine is inspired by the bat-eared fox’s wide-eyed curiosity and discerning taste.
A long-legged, water-wading bird, the Grey Heron is an elegant hunter, offering a natural alternative to pest control. Smooth with juicy red fruit flavours, this wine honours the Grey Heron as a friend of the vineyard - a perfect blend of elegance and firm structure.
