Aside from creating a range of delicious wines that cater for a plethora of palates, we want each of our wines to stand for something we are passionate about. Naturally, this objective led us to linking our various varietals to some of the most meaningful NGO’s, charities and NPO’s that inspire us. Furthermore, we are dedicated to giving back to under privileged-communities by nurturing and training young, up-and-coming wine enthusiasts to take the art of wine drinking into a new era. We are achieving this through our graduate programme, in association with the Gender Equality Principles (GEP) Initiative.

About the Turtle Rescue Programme
Only one to two out of a 1000 sea turtle hatchlings survive to maturity and make it through the rehabilitation and release programme. The foundation are working around the clock to increase this statistic and contribute to the recovery of sea turtle numbers worldwide.
They continue to improve on their treatment protocols and have achieved an incredible 85% release rate. The data collected has been documented in various post-graduate studies and publications and the team continue to contribute to the growing global knowledge base of turtle rehabilitation and treatment plans. There is nothing better than releasing healthy turtles back into the ocean – the highlight of every turtle rescue season. We celebrate each rescuer, the rehabilitation dedication and each turtle survivor.
Behind the scenes of the exhibits at the Two Oceans Aquarium, they also actively rescue, rehabilitate and release stranded and distressed sea turtles as part of their broader conservation mission. With the support of an extensive network of organisations and volunteers along the Western Cape’s coast, as well as many incredible donors; hundreds of sea turtles have been saved, reared to full strength and released back into the wild.
