About this Wine

These Cabernet Sauvignon vines thrive in the Western Cape’s rich soils, basking in plentiful sunlight during the day and cooled by the Atlantic breeze. These conditions yield grapes that deliver the deep, intense flavors and aromas intrinsic to the variety. We adhere to sustainable viticulture practices, ensuring we create wines that not only express the unique characteristics of the region and the variety but also respect the environment. The Painted Wolf winery champions unity and cooperation in every aspect of our operations, akin to a pack of painted wolves.
