Swartland, South Africa

To the north of Cape Town is the large district of Swartland. This district was considered to be a source for inexpensive, large-yielding grapes and wine for many years. However, in recent, Swartland has undergone a considerable transformation to be a center for more premium wine production. Old-vine Chenin Blanc, Syrah, and Cape blends tend to be well-recognized from this area in particular. To enhance fruit concentration and produce higher quality wines, producers can dry-farm (grow without irrigation) to lower their yields. 

Mullineux Winery was established in 2007 by Chris and Andrea Mullineux. Growing up in Northern California, Winemaker Andrea Mullineux studied Viticulture and Oenology at UC-Davis before working in Stellenbosch and meeting Chris at a wine festival in Champagne. Chris is the Viticulturist, in charge of the vineyards on their farm on Kasteelberg Mountain as well as fruit sourcing for their value Kloof Street wines. To add to their acclaim, Andrea Mullineux was named Wine Enthusiast’s Winemaker of the Year in 2016.
