OUR STORY


Uncanny came to be as most good stories do – two good friends and a love for even better wine. Sounding strangely familiar?

The South African lifestyle is synonymous with the outdoors – music festivals in a park, summer days next to the pool or braai fire, and a hike up a mountain. And South Africans also know real wine.

People who love great wine made by world class winemakers don’t have to compromise on quality for the convenience of canned wine.

UNCANNY WINE was created in early-2018 by Arnold Vlok and Ruan Viljoen with the aim of creating South Africa’s first certified and premium canned wine.

FIRST CERTIFIED
PREMIUM CANNED WINE
IN SOUTH AFRICA

One of the very first decisions Arnold + Ruan made was to continually focus on premium wines, and to have it certified by the Wine and Spirit Board of South Africa (WSB)Having a wine certified by the WSB allows for the declaration of cultivar, vintage and region under the Wine of Origin scheme. 

Winemaking starts in the vineyards, so only the highest quality grapes from regions ideally suited to the cultivars are selected. The Chenin Blanc 2019 grapes were sourced from the iconic Swartland region, and the Merlot 2018 from Stellenbosch.

The process was further refined by using winemakers who could produce the premium quality “no sulphur added” wines desired, along with consulting experienced wine experts throughout.

Adhering to the strict requirements resulted in Uncanny Wines being the FIRST CERTIFIED PREMIUM CANNED WINE IN SOUTH AFRICA!

SOUTH AFRICA’S

FIRST CANNED

DE-ALCOHOLISED WINES

In 2020 Uncanny launched the first canned De-Alcoholised wines in South Africa. Only the best suited wines were selected based on the profile we ultimately wanted in our exciting and guilt-free wine range. The alcohol was removed from the wines before being expertly crafted to create products that taste strangely familiar…it’s Uncanny!

The de-alcoholised wine range consists of a fresh and crisp Sauvignon Blanc, and a rich and fruity Pinotage.
