Story Of Our Two Wineries

Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines is the partnership between Chris and Andrea Mullineux and Analjit Singh. The partnership owns two of South Africa’s most highly regarded wineries – Leeu Passant in Franschhoek and Mullineux in the Swartland.

Husband and wife winemaker team, Chris and Andrea Mullineux, set out in 2007 with a shared vision to create authentic Swartland wines that reflect the distinct terroir of the region while embracing reasoned, sustainable farming practices and modern minimalist winemaking. Their commitment to quality and their deep respect for the environment and their employees have earned them acclaim both nationally and internationally, and has led to Mullineux being awarded South African Winery of the Year an unprecedented five times by the highly respected Platter’s Guide.

In 2013, the Mullineuxs’ journey into fine wine saw a natural evolution when they partnered with Analjit Singh (BAS) to form Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines, and started the Leeu Passant winery situated on Analjit’s Leeu Estates in Franschhoek. This venture is focused on expressing the broader South African landscape and celebrating the rich winemaking and viticultural heritage of South Africa by working with some of the Cape’s oldest and most exciting vineyards beyond the Swartland region.
