The Juno Wine Company

Comparing wine and the art of winemaking to a beautiful woman is an analogy so apt, it never ages in its deception.

The JUNO Wine Company was founded in 2004 by unifying the talents of a highly innovative and energetic team, owners Johan du Toit, Oliver Kirsten and Pieter Kritzinger, the masterful skill of distinguished winemaker Newald Marais and the peerless talents of artist Tertia du Toit. This awesome foursome has created a daring and ambitious brand that brings playful sensuality, art and fine wine into everyday life. Each member of the dynamic team brings their unique strengths to the affair, romancing wine lovers with their new range of full-bodied wines, while bringing flirtatious mystique and voluptuous value to the traditional wine industry.

Comparing wine and the art of winemaking to a beautiful woman is an analogy so apt, it never ages in its deception. The Juno Wine Company enhances this sentiment by taking its inspiration from its namesake, the Roman goddess Juno, adored protector of women and feminine sensuality. In this spirit, the Juno Wine Company has dedicated their wines to the unsung heroines of the harvest, thereby paying homage to the beauty, strength and commitment of all Cape Maidens past and present.

This admiration and respect is carried through onto the exquisite and unique labels specifically designed for each Cape Maidens wine. Tertia du Toit, renowned local artisit and a Cape Maiden in her own right, translates this passion and creativity into the distinct, eye-catching labels on each bottle. According to du Toit, the labels create an integrated visual meeting between predominantly male winemaking traditions and the sensual nature of wine itself. In defiance of the mundane, every Juno label is a vibrant canvas, indelibly marrying the art of winemaking with the art of painting in a timeless love affair. The labels succinctly express a richer approach to life in the desire to savour each sip everyday.
