The wine maker, Gregory Brink Louw has two dogs that greatly enjoy being a part of the daily Silvermist adventures. The character filled “Cape Collie” Rescue dog is named Rooster, and appropriately so. He is always first to wake and ready to start the day before sunrise with contagious excitement and enthusiasm.
Our Silvermist Estate Mascot is Rocketdog, who is behind the famous Rocket Dog Red Blend. An abandoned ‘X’ breed street dog, so inbreed she turned orange. In her early years, Rocketdog lived only to survive – riddled with biliary, burst, battered, she was left to roam the harsh street of Hermanus with no love, food or warmth. Rocketdogs luck changed 13 year ago when she walked into Gregory’s life one memorable Christmas morning. They shared a special moment over a bite size piece of Rusk and an unbreakable bound of mutual love and understanding was formed instantly. Since that day, Rocketdog never leaves Gregory’s side and her gratitude to him is evident. She feature on all Silvermist Wines as well as a Rocketdog Organic Red Blend is made yearly in celebration of the spirited character of Rocketdog and their ever-faithful friendship.
