With Coastal Pulse and Purpose
Established in 1996, Arniston Bay was
inspired by the charm and
breathtaking beauty of the historic
Arniston fishing village on the
Southern tip of Africa.
Arniston Bay wines are expertly crafted by the
father and son winemaking
duo, Francois and
Abraham de Villiers and harness the freshness and world-class
quality of wines produced from Coastal vineyards.
Each varietal showcases the distinctive characteristics that are associated with Coastal origin wines.
The Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing, the Rosé is
striking yet elegant, and the Shiraz offers fragrant floral
aromas with a hint of soft spice.
The small fishing village of
Arniston is situated at the most southerly
point of the African continent.
It is best known for its 200 year-old
fisherman’s village, Kassiesbaai. The village
is a national monument and its
whitewashed, thatched cottages have
stolen the hearts of many.
Penguin Conservation & SANCCOB
Arniston Bay is deeply committed to environmental conservation, sustainability, and community development. We are proud to partner with organisations making significant strides in these areas.
For every bottle of Arniston Bay wine sold,
a contribution is made to SANCCOB (South African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds)
to assist in their fight towards the conservation
of coastal seabirds, with a particular focus on our beloved, endangered African penguin.
The SANCCOB team rescue abandoned penguins, rehabilitate, and then release them back into the wild.
Social Responsibility &
Arniston Community Trust
In addition to penguin conservation, Arniston Bay values and contributes to various social certifications and projects. In partnership with Delhaize, Arniston Bay provides financial support to Arniston Community Trust bursaries.
Through this initiative, we have enabled over 40 talented youth from the fishing communities surrounding Arniston to pursue tertiary education, including the first-ever medical doctor from the area.
Through our Fairtrade certification, a contribution is made to farmworker community projects such as education and healthcare facilities.
Arniston Bay's commitment to sustainability extends beyond its connections with these organisations.
We are taking measures to minimise our environmental impact, such as reducing carbon emissions and using sustainable packaging.
We work closely with our growers and suppliers to ensure sustainable and ethical practices are used throughout the supply chain. Our wine range is also certified by the Vegan Society and IPW, ensuring that environmentally sustainable practices are followed.
