We are a small, highly focused Family winery based in the village of Riebeek Kasteel producing a select Family of hand-crafted wines from the granite and shale based terroirs of the Swartland Region of South Africa.
The Swartland is a beautiful and wild place. The landscape is a series of rolling hills, with a few significant outcrops of rock that form the Paardeberg, Riebeek Kasteel and Piketberg Mountains. It is not an easy place to establish vines, and is a region that has as much of an influence on the vineyards and people who farm there as the people have on the land itself. This brings to mind what film director David von Ancken has to say about the old American West.
“The primal, universal power of the landscape strips away everything but the truth of men’s souls.”
In much the same way, we feel the Swartland landscape bares the souls of grape vines, and in those varieties that can take the ruggedness, true personality of site is revealed.

  • Mullineux White Blend 2014


    Lightly oaked and lightly floral aromas of white blossom, white peach, green apple and lemon. With a touch of sweet fruit on the approach, this settles into an oaky, herbal and citrus noted blend of lemon, tangerine, honeyed melon and green apple with a wooded finish and tart acidity throughout.90 pts Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial

  • The status of South African wine in the USA is lamentable. Even in New York City, where the most diverse selection of wine styles and origins in the world spoils imbibers, South Africa barely appears on the radar screen. The US has no heritage links to the Cape, and much of what has come ashore here in the 20 years since the end of apartheid has...

    Mullineux, the garagiste winery by young couple Chris and Andréa Mullineux, are making record speed at winning wine writers' hearts. Their wines, over the board, are excellent. No need (in my mind) to hit their prestige bottlings of Syrah - their "regular" shiraz is anything but regular. Same for their sweet straw wine, and for this white blend.... Read More

  • Mullineux Family Wines Syrah Swartland 2009


    Tasted with Cathy Van Zyl MW at a Mullineux trade event in Cape Town last March, the wines of Chris Mullineux have helped put the quality and terroir of Swartland on the map. Made from Syrah sourced strictly from organic growers in the region, Chris crafts Northern Rhone ringers on granite and schist soils. While the 2009 Syrah shows the grace a... Read More

  • Hospice du Rhone, the brainchild of John Alban, has become Spring's epicenter for all things Rhone.  This global celebration is a warm embrace of all 22 grape varieties that trace their heritage to the lands that surround France’s 505 mile watering hole, 18 years strong, with this year, embarrassingly, being my first.  Well, it took me ten years...
