Black Elephant Vintners

Boutique Winery situated in the beautiful Franschhoek valley in South Africa

As producer, Black Elephant Vintners focuses on identifying and procuring quality estate-grown grapes cultivated within the Franschhoek valley and surrounding regions from which it produces and crafts quality wines.

As distributor, we act as an agent to private cellars that wish to leverage off our wine distribution network and sales and marketing platforms. We act as a virtual co-op for these wineries by representing independent boutique wineries that wish to have their brands marketed under the Black Elephant Vintners umbrella.

Our wines originate from, and are produced under, the “Wine of Origin Franschhoek” banner. The exception to this is our incomparable Back Roads label, whose philosophy is to produce wines from carefully selected vineyards, blocks and grapes that display unique and exceptional potential – be it in or beyond the borders of Franschhoek.

Our wines represent our sincerest endeavours to bring the Franschhoek experience to all wine lovers for the sole purpose of enjoyment and as an expression of our appreciation for our good life.
