CELEBRATING FOUR YEARS WITH OUR MELODIC VERTICAL DISCOVERY BOX | 2021
'Bringing art and wine together? It's Inevitable, Orpheus!" cried the Raven
Celebrate our three wines with our Inevitable Vinoneers Mixed Case, complemented with three unique Limited Edition artworks signed by the Raven himself!
To celebrate the natural fusion of art and wine that underpins the Orpheus and the Raven range, we've created the Inevitable Vinoneers Mixed Case including two bottles each of the 2019 Number 7 Pinotage, 2018 Number 42 Cape Red Blend and 2019 Old Bush Vine Chenin Blanc.
Added to this, get a Limited Edition Letterpressed artwork of each of the distinctive labels, numbered and signed by the Raven himself!
Orpheus had this to add, “I believe COVID was an opportunity for re-invention for the Vinoneers. I will never forget sitting in my partner’s studio just before the first lockdown, with a doomsday cash flow projection on the table and our hands in our rapidly-thinning hair…!
“But what I found inspiring, is that all the relationships that we nurtured over the years did come through for us when we needed it most. Brands don’t sell wine, PEOPLE sell wine. I do hope it brings joy and a sense of fun to our fans!”
“He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.” - Douglas Adams
THE DRINKS BUSINESS AWARDS | OCTOBER 2020
O&R amongst the best in the world
"We'll never know unless we explore the possibilities," said a determined Orpheus.
The Orpheus and the Raven labels have been awarded a prestigious international award by global publishing house The Drinks Business.
O&R's label design partner, Bravo Design, was nominated as one of five finalists in the Best Packaging and Design for Wine, and secured Second Place overall during an awards ceremony streamed on YouTube last week.
"We'd never have known if we didn't look to the future and test ourselves against the best," Orpheus said of the accolade. "It is fantastic to be recognised as one of the best in the world."

INTERNATIONAL DRINK CHENIN DAY | JUNE 2020
Tasting notes for our Old Bush Vine Chenin Blanc, in 6/8 time
We decided to celebrate International Drink Chenin Day a little differently this year ...
We celebrated International Drink Chenin Day this year a little differently, by describing how our Orpheus & the Raven Old Bush Vine Chenin Blanc tastes in music. With Orpheus on acoustic guitar and bassist Rob Stemmett adding soulful depth, Sting's St Agnes and the Burning Train captured the depth and complexity of our Chenin.
