We’d like to propose a toast…

Thinking about all that’s happened in 2014 can be overwhelming. For one, it’s hard to believe that buying something (especially a bottle of wine) can actually make someone’s life a bit better. But it can, and it has. 

Because of the fair trade premium – a few cents built into the price of every bottle of Stellar wine – we’ve been able to see a few great Stellar Foundation projects to fruition. Take the mobile clinic, for example. It means upgraded health care for over 300 people, and we think that’s pretty big. We’ve also been able to buy a sports field and a bus, upgrade local schools and meet people who share our vision along the way. It goes without saying that we could never have done it without all of you.

The continued support of our loyal customers and partners reminds us that we’re building a wine business that stands for more than tasting notes and mouth feel – we’re in this to do the work we love in a way that honours our planet and the people that make it so awesome.

It’s shown us that believing in what we do, and the way we do it, pays off. It reminds us that organic is a way of life, not just a fad or fluffy philosophy, and that making wine this way is really rewarding. We’re looking forward to the next harvest and everything the New Year will bring!


A massive thank you, from all of us at Stellar.

Here’s to you.

We’d like to wish you an incredible holiday season with friends and family (and colleagues, if you ‘re working through it all). Rest well, dine better and remember to be safe.

      Hi Roderick, yes they are the same thing. They are just American and English ways of spelling. Thanks

    I was recently referred to your wines by a good SA friend who was in turn introduced to your wines by a friend of hers. (Hey who needs social media marketing when you have a network like THAT?! lol)
    But she’s in SA and I’m and ex Durban boy living here in Florida, USA. Geen probleem:- found your website, then found your USA distributor Triton, then looked up places to buy, and bingo! Apparently I can get Stellar wines right here in my small town in Florida. I hope to do that in the next day or two.
    Then I read more about your farm, your goals and your projects, and why this organic program is your game.
    I just wanted to tell you I support everything you are about and all your aspirations for your organization and the community which you serve. And I hope to contribute in some small way to the cause through my wine-buying habit.
    So from one SA man to you all, I say “Cheers!”, and congratulations! For you are showing us how life should be lived!
    Alles van die beste,
    Oom Paul from Port Orange, Florida, USA
