Mullineux Family Wines


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 soild 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. This brings to mind what film director David von Ancken has to say about the old American West:

“The primal, universal power of the landscape strips away everything but the truth of men’s souls.” 

We work closely with a select group of growers who follow sustainable reasoned farming practices. 



After working several vintages at wineries in France, South Africa and California, Chris and Andrea chose to settle in the Swartland, firmly believing that the granite and schist based terroirs and old vineyards ot the Swartland have the potential to produce truley great wine. 

Mullineux was established in 2007, when Chris and Andrea Mullineux settled in the Swartland wine region, 60 kilometers north of Cape Town. 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 2020 the winery had received thirty 5-star ratings from Platter’s South African Wine Guide, as well as being awarded  Platter’s Winery of the Year an unprecedented 4 times in 2014, 2016, 2019 and 2020.

In addition, Andrea was named Wine Enthusiast’s 2016 International Winemaker of the Year and in 2016 Chris & Andrea were Tim Atkin’s South African Winemakers of the Year.
