Mullineux is a highly focused family winery based near the village of Riebeek Kasteel, in the Swartland region of South Africa. We produce a select range of hand-crafted wines from the granite and shale based soils of the area.
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, Kasteelberg 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.
After working several vintages at wineries in France, South Africa and California, Chris & Andrea chose to settle in the Swartland region of South Africa, firmly believing that the granite and schist based terroirs and old vineyards of the Swartland have the potential to produce truly great wine.
Mullineux Family Wines was established in 2007, and was owned and managed by Chris and Andrea Mullineux, with business partners, Keith Prothero and Peter Dart. Within a very short time period the winery established itself as one of South Africa’s most celebrated wine brands, both locally and on the international front. By 2016 they had received seventeen 5 star ratings from Platter’s South African Wine Guide, as well as being awarded Red Wine of the Year in 2013 and 2016, and Winery of the Year in 2014 and 2016.
