VAN LOVEREN Family Vineyards has sealed an agreement with SANParks that will see every sale of Rhino Run Organic Wine contribute to the conservation of South Africa’s natural heritage. SANParks is the organisation responsible for managing South Africa’s national parks and is now the second beneficiary to benefit from this range.
Rhino Run was established in 2013 from inspiration of Dr Ian Player, founder of the Player Ntombela Foundation and the conservationist who dedicated his life and career since the 1960s to lead the efforts to save the rhinoceros. A portion of every purchase of Rhino Run Ian Player red blend is donated to conservation and anti-poaching initiatives.
Through the agreement reached with SANParks, a portion of sales from the range will now be used towards activities in the national parks and for rhino conservation.
“We are very excited about this new development, association and relationship for Rhino Run,” says Van Loveren Family Vineyards MD Phillip Retief. “The preservation of our country’s natural heritage is something we proudly support.”
The contribution to SANParks further expands Van Loveren’s efforts to restoring environmental health while continuing to produce exceptional and elegant wines. The journey includes Rhino Run Wines recently being certified 100% organic.
There are five wines in the Rhino Run organic range, which comprises two white wines, a red blend and two single variety reds. The wines are available through a variety of fine wine boutiques and online, from around R80 a bottle
