The Grape Grinder Wine Company was founded in 2010 with the express aim of showcasing to an international wine consuming audience the creative energy present in the modern South African wine industry, both in terms of design style and winemaking innovation. Our latest addition is a small batch, handcrafted, copper distilled gin - Cape Fynbos Gin - hand bottled and labeled at the Paarl distillery.

Based in the beautiful town of Paarl, South Africa, the Grape Grinder winery was founded and is run by two friends,

Oliver Kirsten and Johan du Toit.
