The Nguni herd of Napier, South Africa.

“The Nguni is a cattle breed indigenous to Southern Africa. A hybrid of different Indian and later European cattle breeds, they were introduced by Bantu-speaking tribes (Nguni people) to Southern Africa during their migration from the North of the continent.

Nguni cattle are known for their fertility and resistance to diseases, being the favourite breed amongst the local Bantu-speaking people of Southern Africa . They are characterised by their multicoloured skin, which can present many different patterns, but their noses are always black-tipped. 

They are a principal form of Sanga cattle, which originated as hybrids of Zebu and humpless cattle in East Africa. DNA analyses have confirmed that they are a combination of Bos indicus and Bos taurus, that is a combination of different Zebu and European cattle breeds”. (from Wikipedia)

Harvest fun

I’ve been at many wineries during harvest time but I’ve never experienced so much fun and dedication amongst the staff as at this small exclusive winery in our home town Napier, South Africa.
