Mullineux is a highly focused, family run winery based near the village of Riebeek, Kasteel in the Swartland region of South Africa. Founded in 2007 by Andrea and Chris Mullineux, the winery has firmly established itself as a leader in producing hand-crafted, unique wines of international acclaim in just a short amount of time. In 2013 Chris & Andrea joined forces with Analjit Singh and together with founding partner Peter Dart they started a parallel winery in Franschhoek called Leeu Passant. The Leeu Passant wines are multi-regional bottlings inspired by the classic age-worthy wines of the Cape from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s.
About the Swartland: Although viticulture in the Western cape is relatively young, the geology is quite old. Mullineux's vines are planted on the most ancient viticultural soils on earth. Three main soil types have evolved in the Swartland from the parent materials that dominate the area, these are shale/schist, granite, and iron-based, each imparting their own special characteristics to the wines. The climate here is perfectly suited to natural methods of farming and lends itself to hands-off winemaking. This is a beautiful and rugged place.
