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

Flavour-packed, soft and juicy comfort wines.  Medium-bodied with ripe boysenberry and mulberry, savoury spice, milk chocolate and toasty wood flavours, leading to a bright crisp finish.
