Pure synchronicity and fortuitous friendships, as well as a deep and sincere love for wine, led to the birth of Black Elephant Vintners. Kevin, Raymond, and Jacques combined their uniquely diverse skillsets in an earnest endeavour to reclaim fun in the creative process of winemaking. They established their title as the rebels of the vine by constantly trying to demystify the winemaking process to all enthusiasts.

By cutting out the stereotypical yadda yadda and pretentiousness of the wine industry and dedicating their raw passion to the craft, the two rebels successfully created a unique range of wines with unrivalled character. Wines that appeals to a wide variety of desires, diverse tastes, and extraordinary occasions. Real wine, for real people.

So what makes this triptych function so brilliantly? Body, mind, and soul… it is the unique contributions each of the three rebels bring to Black Elephant Vintners. Jacques is the body, providing what you can see and taste. Kevin is the mind, bringing innovation through creatively cultivating radical ideas for growth and Raymond is the soul, finding immense value in how much clients appreciate the wine and how they become part of the tribe by selecting BEV wines for their special occasions.

Dubbed the rebel wine makers, Black Elephant Vintners strives to demystify wines to all enthusiasts and offer wine experiences without the pomp and ceremony commonly associated with the industry. To this end, Kevin and Jacques have introduced fun into serious winemaking whilst capturing the taste and terroir of the Franschhoek valley in their wines. The diverse Black Elephant Vintners brand portfolio enables them to provide a range of wines with unique physical characteristics that appeal to different desires, tastes and occasions. It is their firm intent to ensure that its wines and brands are exciting, premium and distinctive at all times!
