The fastest rising star of the Swartland - young winemakers, Chris and Andrea Mullineux, are making sensational wines in this area of old bush vines and dry land farming.

Chenin and Syrah are the dominant grapes supported by other southern Rhone and Mediteranean varietals. Under the Mullineux Famly Wines label, they make a Syrah, a white blend dominated by Chenin supported by Clairette Blanche and Viognier as well as a Straw Wine from Chenin.

They are founding members of the Swartland Independent Producers - a group of like-minded winemakers in the area.
