Painted Wolf
Earlier this week Painted Wolf collected Classic Wine Magazines award for the Top Niche White Wine of 2012 for their Roussanne 2011.
Jeremy Borg, the Top Dog at Painted Wolf, shares his thoughts:

"This award is the cherry on the cake of what has been an amazing year for us. The philosophy and vision we have for our wines and branding is beginning to pay dividends.

We have a fine pack of  growers supplying grapes for our wines, and have enjoyed the privilege of working with some tremendous wine makers over the past few years. Our creative team has done awesome work.  Emma, Amanda and Sue have kept the heart of the pack beating with their work behind the scenes. A number of our business associated have provided Painted Wolf wines with lines of credit and service beyond the call of duty and business sense- you know who you are- thank you so much.

We would like to single out a few individuals whose inputs have been significant in helping us achieve such magnificent accolades for our wines in the past year-

Grape growers Billy Hughes, Juergen Heinrich and Ros Koch; winemakers  Inge Terblanche, Trizanne Barnard, Theunis Verwey, Pieter Carstens and  Rolanie Lotz; packaging guru Jaco van der Merwe; designers Lori Bentley and Catherine Barnhoorn, printer Rotolabel and Rob Laurie of Radoux coopers.

Painted Wolf Wines continue to contribute a percentage of our revenue to Wild Dog conservation. When Amanda joined the Painted Wolf pack, our capacity for conservation advocacy was significantly enhanced. In collaboration with husband Anthony , their company Imageworks have made over 200 wild life and environmental documentaries over the years.  Our Pedals 4 Paws program is up and running,  and we have completed three fantastic bush bicycle rides this year, raising over R40000 for Wild Dog conservation."
