The Mullineux Winery

Roundstone farm is the base of all Mullineux winemaking, where a large portion of the Swartland fruit comes from. The property is situated on the south western slopes of Kasteelberg mountain between Malmesbury and Riebeek Kasteel, and one of the best areas in the Swartland for growing grapes.

The Soils

The soils on Roundstone are all based on a bedrock of very deep Schist, with the top soils varying from heavy, hard, blue schist, through lovely weathered brown schist with veins of quartz and also some very deep colluvial soils that have settled from erosion of the Table Mountain Sandstone on the top of Kasteelberg. These heavy rocky soils tend to produce deeply structured red wines and white wines with lovely texture.

The Vineyards

The vineyards used for Mullineux wines are predominantly dry land bush vines and sustainably farmed. The vines on Roundstone farm are in conversion to Regenerative Organic to sustain a natural balance of the land and soil and enhanced, by applying organic composts, mulch and cover crops, which is a practice that is ideal in the warm and dry climate of the Swartland region.
