He has had a wide range of experience from working with producers, ranging from the absolutely top-end wines to those much larger organisations that specialise in supermarket supply.

The closing date for the Wine Quiz competition, is 3 May 2021.

Withington Malbec 2019:

  • It is the Argentinians who have mastered Malbec, and deservedly so. In South Africa Malbec accounts for less than 0.05% of total vineyard plantings. Withington Malbec really is fabulously different. Taste the lovely red-berry flavours and sense the voluptuous elegance of this wine, and you will understand.

Roan Ranger 2018:

  • The Withington Roan Ranger, is a blended wine created by Charles Withingon. With a play on the word “Rhône”, the name points towards the style of wine – a blend of  Grenache (65%),  Cinsaut and Mourvèdre. This is a beautifully soft red wine, made from grapes grown in the Darling region.
