Black Elephant Vintners was born out of synchronicity, fortuitous friendships and a love for wine. Following on from the sale of Black Elephant Investment Holdings’ stake in Noah Financial Innovation in 2011, co-founder Kevin Swart uprooted his family and moved from Johannesburg to Franschhoek where he purchased a charming boutique wine farm, La Petite Vigne, situated on the outskirts of Franschhoek village. Six months later, his business partner and co-founder of Black Elephant Investment Holdings, Raymond Ndlovu, followed suit and the Ndlovus joined the Swarts in their fearless uncovering of a new life in the Franschhoek Valley.
Black Elephant Vintners introduce fun into serious winemaking, while capturing the taste and terroir of the Franschhoek Valley in the wines they produce. Their diverse brand portfolio enables them to provide a range of wines with unique characteristics that appeal to different requirements, tastes and occasions – exciting, premium and distinctive at all times.
Being the Rebels of the Vine, traditional wine and cheese pairings are not what you will find at Black Elephant Vintners.
On offer, instead, is a Silent Disco experience where your inner rockstar can escape!! What better way to experience the world than with a glass of wine, music and nothing else?
After a successful trip to the UK, where Kevin staged a Silent Disco at Jamie Oliviers’ 15 restaurant in Cornwall, he decided to bring the Silent Disco home.
Grab a group of friends (maximum of 20) and head over, or catch them on tour as they will come to you!
Alternatively, try the resourcefully composed Music and Wine pairing. This novel approach enhances the experience of wine tasting by utilising not only the senses of taste, touch, smell, and sight. This unique combination of sound and taste completely sets apart Black Elephant Vintners from the commercial wine industry.
Allow approximately 2 hours for a tasting.
