n February 1994, Jeremy visited his family in South Africa. His sister, Amanda was working as a wildlife film maker and had met Emma at Lloyd’s Camp. She knew that the camp was looking for a cook and had volunteered his services. He was interviewed by Emma, who recommended him for the job.
During the seven inspirational years, working with Charles Back at Fairview, Jeremy self-funded his post grad degree in wine business at Adelaide University. Emma pursued her photography and the family expanded.
Now making wine of their own since 2005 they just haven’t had the time to look back!
These guys are keen conservationists and work with organisations such as TUSK, and the Endangered Wildlife Trust with a percentage of the takings on the wines going to such causes.
Named after Billy ‘Guillermo’ Hughes, one of the first investors in the winemaking and conservation venture that is Painted Wolf.
Full, rich and indulgent with juicy blueberry and mulberry fruit, hints of coffee beans, cocoa and gentle wood. Ripe tannins with a creamy, long finish. Painted Wolf Wines supports the conservation of African wild dogs by donating 5% of UK revenue to the TUSK Foundation.
Try with braised beef shanks, sweet and sour pork, wild mushroom risotto or Mexican-style ostrich in mole, melted cheese toastie or salt-baked Gruyere
