Welcome To Black Elephant Vintners

We Are The Misfits Of The Wine Industry,
The Rebels Of The Vine

It’s our mission to bring truth to the wine industry and create experiences that turn convention on its head.

We believe in truth, in seeing opportunities where others see challenges. To thrive where others fail. To push the boundaries of conformity in an industry that has long forgotten to have fun.

Join our tribe and set your inner rebel free.

What We’re All About

Surrounded by majestic mountains, you will discover the quaint village of Franschhoek. Founded by the French Huguenots in 1687, this beautiful area is home to some of South Africa’s most sought-after wine and dine experiences.

It hosts a wide variety of festivals, such as the Bastille festival, the Champagne festival and various others. With unrivaled natural beauty, Franschhoek remains a must see and a place to experience. The splendour and tastes of old, meet the new and modern, in a vibrant dance of colour, culture, taste and hospitality.
