Leopards Leap

Leopard's Leap Wines was conceptualised at the turn of the century by winemaker and businessman, Hein Koegelenberg.

With guidance from his late father-in-law, internationally-renowned business leader, Dr Anton Rupert.

Initially created for the export market in the United Kingdom, Leopard's Leap has since rapidly gained an international reputation for providing excellent quality wines at affordable prices.

The popularity of the brand has seen its market expand to more than 40 countries worldwide, with new export markets continuously being explored. Leopard's Leap forms part of the RK portfolio of wine
