Originating from the Western Cape of South Africa, the Wagon Tree range consists of a Chenin Blanc, a Rosé and a Cabernet Merlot.

“The South African category is on the increase and we believe the market is now ready to receive a contemporary premium quality wine brand with an affordable price tag," said Rachel Hawes, innovation brand manager at Treasury Wine Estates EMEA.

The brand takes its name from a South African tree called the ‘Waboom’ whose wood was used by the early settlers for the wheel rims of wagons. The tree has also historically been used to indicate the most fertile soils for growing vines.
