Franschhoek Wine Valley

Meet Renton, our wine dog for October!

This month we feature our youngest Wine Dog, Renton, an eight-month-old Jack Russell, who calls Topiary Wines home. Named after one of the characters from the cult film Trainspotting, Renton belongs to Sales Manager, Lawrence White. 

Renton loves nothing more than chasing after tennis balls or vineyard sticks. Not a fan of the seas as he dislikes being cold. If he’s left for longer than five seconds – yes, you read it correctly – at a time without getting attention you’ll be sure to hear him crying like a baby.

Currently in the training phase, Lawrence has managed to teach him the basics such as sitting and lying down, but doesn’t last long should something else grab his attention.

Renton loves welcoming visitors to the estate and looks forward to your visit soon.
