Wines from South Africa


Rhino Run

      

Rhino Run Wines

The Rhino Run wines were inspired by Dr Ian Player, founder of the Player Ntombela Foundation and the conservationist who dedicated his life and career to the efforts to save the African Rhino.

The black and white African rhino are two of only five rhino species left, with the black rhino listed as critically endangered and the white rhino as near threatened. Since 2008, rhino poaching has increased and these gentle giants are trapped in a fight for survival. Rhinos are slaughtered for their horn, which some cultures believe has supernatural and medicinal properties. However, rhino horn does not make you younger, make you more fertile, free you from demons, or cure typhoid or the flu. It only kills rhinos.
