Wines made with a big heart

"This is a huge opportunity to better lives and livelihoods. I am proud to be part of a project I can call my own,” explains Gynore Fredericks, assistant winemaker at the multi-award winning Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines (pictured, centre). The project Gynore is talking about is Great Heart, a staff empowerment company, aimed at improving the livelihoods of all employees of the winery and their families.

Profits from the wines made under the Great Heart label – including this gorgeous Red Blend and the stunning Chenin Blanc – go directly to the employees who own the brand and make the wine.

Some of the Great Heart team: Chris & Andrea Mullineux, Gynore Fredericks, Baron Willemse and Johan Waterboer

Press Quotes

Great Heart Red Blend 2019 "This has lovely fruit purity and a real elegance: such an expressive, balanced, drinkable red with enticing floral fruit." Dr Jamie Goode , 3rd June 2021 75cl
The wine design was inspired by Jaco Sieberagen's sculpture of Cape wagtails

An idea takes flight

The concept for Great Heart came about during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic when vineyard owners Chris and Andrea Mullineux (pictured above) saw just how hard their team were working, under such difficult circumstances, and wanted to reward them in a meaningful way. Great Heart is therefore a separate business to Mullineux & Leeu, but uses the same vineyards and cellars to make its wines.

The labels themselves were designed by Jaco Sieberagen and inspired by his sculpture, which shows a flock of Cape wagtails – a bird known in South African folklore for its selflessness, courage and its great heart.

Naturally, the best way to enjoy these wines is with the great hearts in your life – fine food and wonderful friends. Serve this spicy red with barbecued food, especially sausages.
