L'Art du Vin's Cannonberg range, comprising a Chenin Blanc and a Cabernet Sauvignon, is produced at the Imbuko Farm based in the historic town of Wellington, in the heart of the renowned Cape winelands. A percentage of the money from the sales of these wines goes directly to support projects within the local community. Philippe is in regular contact with the growers and representatives from the local community throughout the year to discuss how best to use the ongoing funds. At present, our donations are being used to improve and maintain the facilities at the Uitkyk Creche, a centre which takes care of pre-school children and assists them with their homework in the afternoons while their parents are at work among the vines. With so many energetic, eager youngsters, there is certainly never a dull moment! According to Rosaline, the headteacher at the centre; “The school motto is ‘dare to make a difference’!” – a philosophy that we certainly agree with.
