A Deeper Dive into Painted Wolf Wines’ Legacy

Crafting Wines with a Wild Heart

At Painted Wolf Wines, every bottle tells a tale of dedication, craftsmanship, and a deep-rooted love for Africa’s wilderness and wildlife. Founded with a dual mission, Painted Wolf Wines not only strives for excellence in winemaking but also champions the cause of the endangered African wild dog. This commitment extends beyond the vineyard, as a portion of our proceeds goes towards conservation and community upliftment efforts​​.

The Art of Winemaking at Painted Wolf

Our founder and winemaker, Jeremy Borg, approaches each batch of grapes with an artist’s touch. At Painted Wolf Wines, there are no rigid recipes. Instead, Jeremy listens to the story each vineyard tells through its harvest. This approach results in wines that are not just beverages, but narratives of the land they come from. The use of natural yeast and restrained wood ageing further ensures that each wine is a true representation of its origin, balancing the fruit’s natural characteristics with a touch of refinement​​.
