Not the ‘very best’ wine, but by far the ‘goodest'.

For every sip you take a donation is made

No House Wine.

The only wine house that builds houses for South Africa

The concept is simple. There’s House Wine and there’s No House Wine. No House Wine builds houses in South Africa for those who need them the most: Aids orphans, and displaced families.


Local love

The houses are built in collaboration with the HomePlan Foundation and local organisations. These organisations make it possible for the children to go to school, and they provide school uniforms and health care. This is how we are able to create a beautiful world for them, almost effortlessly.


The dream: the ‘goodest’ wine in the world

Our dream is not to become the best wine in the world, but the ‘goodest’. With very good wine, good production methods, good projects and good people. It’s great to see this initiative further expand thanks to the many enthusiastic people involved. And secretly it’s our dream for the future to build even more houses. Simply because we can.

60 houses built already

Every bottle is a brick

Raising a glass to a wonderful future

For every bottle you buy, you give a brick back to South Africa. And every bottle of sparkling wine means two bricks. It’s as simple as that. So far, with all of these separate bricks we have been able to build 60 houses.

Sip by sip, brick by brick, together we are doing something really cool.

At No House Wine we are very proud of this, but we are especially proud of you. Because with every bottle you buy, you make a donation that counts to baie beautiful South Africa, the country where our delicious and honest wines are produced.  

Buy a bottle, invite friends, feel... befok*

Going from one bottle to becoming the ‘goodest’ movement

*Befok is Afrikaans for cool, great, amazing and perhaps even for the ‘kindest’. What started with one bottle, as a modest initiative by designers and volunteers has now seemed to become a ‘movement’ that is working together with fantastic winemakers and bottlers, the kindest importers, lovely stores and great retailers. Each and every one motivated for the cause; we don’t want to be the best, but we certainly strive to be the ‘kindest’.

We are proud of all the people raising their glasses filled with No House Wine, so that children have the opportunity to grow up in a ‘home’. And now the people in South Africa want to do something in return. During our last trip we wrote down the most delicious recipes of the local grandmothers and caregivers, which we would like to share with you on this website. Now, you too can be a true Zulu chef! This way, we all get to do what we feel is befok. That is the spirit of No House Wine.


Everyone, thanks!
