Adam Mason, Raised by Wolves: Here’s a little bit o’ the witches’ cauldron vibe, some dry ice creating an eerie plume as it blankets the juice in barrel. Just need the eye of toad

Harvest Time – Adam Mason (is) Raised by Wolves

Adam Mason is the winemaker and founder of Raised by Wolves, his “side project” and love project – separate from his role as head of winemaking at the larger, more commercial wine estate Mulderbosch. Raised by Wolves is his “alter ego”.

“The wolf in many cultures represents the dark side. There’s something very primal about our fear of wolves: the fear of the wilderness, that other side, the dark side. So on one hand, it represents our untame self.”

We chatted to Adam about his harvest journey this year, in a time characterised by drought in the Cape, and in particular with his “Law of the Wild” philosophy that he applies to the small-batch wines coming from Raised by Wolves.
