“The Sky Blues Trust wine project is an idea we’ve had for a number of years now and I’m pleased that Wilderkraans were able to make it come to life. This is one of those achievements we will look back on after some time and really be proud of what we were able to achieve.”

Aside from the Estate range offered in white and red, Wilderkraans also offer a premium, signature range, the Barrel Select Reserve Range as well as blends and MCC’s.

“The Titans are the most successful team in domestic cricket in South Africa and over the last two decades, boasting legendary past and present players. Management, ably lead by Dr Jacques Faul, have been innovative in marketing the brand and product offering attracting larger audiences and supporters.” Explained Gary Harlow, the owner of Wildekrans.
