The story of this wine. We share our wine making equipment with Leeuwenkuil Family vineyards in their artisanal cellar. Through this relationship we have access to a number of the best vineyards in Paarl and the Swartland. Roussanne, native to the warmer regions of France’s Rhone valley, is a relative newcomer and still very rare in South Africa. There are fewer than 10 South African producers and we are proud to be ranked amongst the top. Our friend Jenny Metelerkamp who lived with us at Lloyd’s camp, Botswana produced the fine Painted Wolf ink drawing for our logo and the pack labels.
