We're Charlie Brain & Walker Brown. We started Lubanzi alongside two of South Africa's most talented winemakers, Trizanne Barnard, a young female winemaker, & Bruce Jack, one of South Africa's most accomplished vintners. Born in Cape Town and named for a wandering dog who led us backpacking across South Africa's Wild Coast, Lubanzi is the story of partnerships, of travels, of community, and of the path less traveled. We're making wines for adventurers AND the rest of the pack, from where the mountain meets the ocean, helping make a home in new places, and and adventure out of the ones we know by heart.

Hailing from South Africa's rugged and iconic Swartland region, our focus is on crafting fairly produced wines that punch above their weight and create a difference in the lives of the laborers who work on South Africa's wine farms. Because of that, our business is structured as a social enterprise, with 50% of annual net profits going back to The Pebbles Project, a South African non profit that works with laborers on SA's wine farms, helping them and their families get access to better education & health care resources.
