Wine Pairing with Black Elephant Vintners

  • Makaranga Garden Lodge 1 Igwababa Road Kloof, KZN, 3640 South Africa (map)

Join us for an exciting evening of gourmet cuisine carefully paired with wines from Black Elephant Vintners.

Black Elephant Vintners was born out of synchronicity, fortuitous friendships and a love for wine.  Co-founder Kevin Swart (Black) in 2011 purchased a charming boutique wine farm, La Petite Vigne, situated on the outskirts of the Franschhoek village. Six months later, a previous business partner Raymond Ndlovu, followed suit and the Ndlovu’s (Elephant) joined the Swart’s in their fearless uncovering of a new life in the Franschhoek valley.

“We believe in truth, in seeing opportunities where others see challenges. To thrive where others fail. To push the boundaries of conformity in an industry that has long forgotten to have fun. We believe in reverence. In the skills and patience of the craft, while reinventing the art of winemaking. Ensuring every bottle has a story and every story has an experience.  We are the misfits of the wine industry, the rebels of the vine.”
