“Take a leaf from the penguin’s book. Casually cool and charismatic, it is unflappable in any situation. Much like this unpretentiously fun wine, which never fails to deliver pure drinking pleasure. That’s why we call it a Pengwine!”

The Atlantic Ocean’s cooling influence results in ideal conditions to produce crisp and refreshing wines in the Western Cape. Another cool aspect of the Atlantic Ocean is the fact that it’s the home of African Penguins.

Once extremely numerous, the African penguin is declining rapidly due to a combination of several threats, including oil pollution and habitat distruction. These charismatic little legends are the inspiration behind the Versus Pengwine range.

Produced from cool, coastal vineyards, the Versus Pengwine range are characterful, modern and dashing. Besides tasting flipping good, they also stand for a good cause: the sustainable conservation of African Penguins.

Through The Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB), Versus Pengwine adopted several penguins and a donation is made to penguin conservation efforts for every bottle of Versus Pengwine sold.

Did You Know?

African penguins’ main diet is sardine and anchovy and the low fish availability is one of the key reasons for the current decline of the species.
