Rhanleigh Wines take their name from a beautiful thoroughbred racehorse of the same name, 1914 winner of the prestigious South African Durban July Handicap.
Just like the beloved Rhanleigh, these front-running wines exemplify beauty, skill and finesse throughout the range.

Our wish is that every glass of Rhanleigh Wine marks the start of a beautiful journey.

Our wines are IPW compliant, what does this means for you the customer?
The IPW (Integrated Production of Wine) is a voluntary environmental sustainability structure which was established by the South African Wine industry in 1998.
This IPW seal that you find on our bottles of wine guarantees that all aspects of wine production on the estate are safe and sustainable, ensuring that the way the grapes are cultivated is as important as the way the wine is made and bottled.
Compliance with the scheme provides buyers with a guarantee that grape production was undertaken with due consideration of the environment, and that the wine was produced in an environmentally responsible manner and is safe for the consumer.
IPW complies with international wine industry environmental sustainability criteria, including the ‘Global Wine Sector Environmental Sustainability Principles’.
