Other Sustainability Notes

We're a start-up, sustainable, South African wine company. 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 fairly produced wine that punches far above its weight. We’re also a Certified B Corp, and as adventurers at heart, we believe that by doing well, we must also be part of doing good for the world around us. We believe in the power – and responsibility – of business to change the world; to change the way consumers think, to shift supply chains toward better balance, to remind us that as a collective we can be an incredible engine for inclusivity, for equity, and for environmental stewardship. We’re committed to ‘net zero’ carbon emissions to meet that end – in world’s apart, the one thing we all have in common is our Earth – let’s protect it.
