You prefer dry-aged prime rib to tofu sausages? You read Playboy instead of Vogue? And your steak comes from an open fire and not out of a microwave? If you answer these questions with a straight forward „Yes!“ then Howzit is going to be your wine of choice.
What do the black and white fists on our label stand for?
A casual greeting between mates. Guys from Europe meeting their South African friends. German perfection. South African soulfulness paired with good fun. In a nutshell: our label tells a tale of an inter-cultural friendship and a joint passion for wine. The friendship between Paul, Mark, Alex und Christian.
Howzit is a picture-perfect Shiraz...
A wine for real men. Meaty, full-bodied, spicy, with distinctive notes of dark berries. Easily accessible but with a punch – wine at its best! This bold Shiraz from Stellenbosch goes perfectly with grilled steaks and burgers. Bring this wine along to your next BBQ and the beer will stay in the fridge. That’s a promise!

The area around Stellenbosch is probably the most renowned wine region in South Africa. Great food, magnificent red wines and a luscious landscape – this “holy“ trinity caters to the most seasoned of gourmet travellers.

Here, Paul and his South African friend – vintner Christian Kuun – produce the Shiraz grapes for their wine!
