The Mullineuxs follow a reasoned approach to farming in all their vineyards and endeavour to be as natural and organic as possible. Some of the vineyards are certified organic. The vineyards are expertly managed by Chris.

Chris and Andrea’s aim is to bottle wines that are a true expression of terroir, from grapes best suited to the particular site’s conditions. Each step in Andrea's meticulous winemaking process is taken keeping this objective top of mind. Grapes are hand-picked and the approach to winemaking is minimalist – no yeasts, acids, tannins, enzymes or filtering agents are added.

Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines’ two portfolios have two distinct stories to tell. The Swartland portfolio encompasses the Signature, Terroir Specific and Kloof Street ranges and the Leeu Passant range is made in Franschhoek from grapes sourced from a variety of regions outside the Swartland.
