wines that make a difference
Skaap is a socially responsible, South African wine from the Dutch Schaap family. At Skaap Wines we're committed to producing high quality, hand-crafted wines that give back to the local community. Personal care and attention is given to every aspect of the wine; letting nature take its course, making our wines as naturally as possible.
If you're wondering, Skaap/Schaap means sheep in Afrikaans/Dutch.
We're situated in the wine growing region of Stellenbosch, South Africa. An area that consistently produces some of the finest new world wines. Nestled at the end of the Schapenberg – Afrikaans for sheep mountain – our wines benefit from an ideal aspect, climate, altitude and a cool ocean breeze.
Donating to Children’s Foodure
We donate 5% of our revenue to Children’s Foodure – a charitable foundation we established to help educate, feed and clothe the children of Sir Lowry's Pass Village.
Supporting & promoting local artists
To demonstrate our commitment to supporting and uplifting the local community our labels showcase the work of local township artists. Each label features a Skaap by a different artist, their art is then promoted and sold at the vineyards guest lodge.
As proud members of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI) we’re committed to minimising the loss of threatened natural habitat in the Cape Winelands and follow conservation-minded farming practices.
