Winery Details

About the Winery

In 2006, Emma and Jeremy Borg decided to create a wine company with one aim – to raise money to build a more hopeful future for the remarkable and highly endangered painted wolf. There are fewer than 6,000 painted wolves, or African wild dogs, left in the world today. Painted Wolf Wines is dedicated to the production of authentic, distinct and delicious wines and to the conservation of African wild dogs and their natural habitat, working with a number of partners to channel up to 5% of turnover into conservation projects

About the wine

Social wines to be enjoyed with friends and family, these wines are named for the den, the heart of all painted wolf communities. Flavour-packed, soft and juicy comfort wines.

A crowd-pleasing medium-bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of red and black berries and cigar box with a touch of toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich mid-mouth texture and a long, fruit-driven finish with fresh acid and firm tannins which will soften with a little bottle age.

Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the Botteleray area of Stellenbosch, Agter Paarl and Swartland.
