The endangered martial eagle (Polemaetus bellicosus) is a large predatory bird with a wingspan of up to 2.3 m, native to sub-Saharan Africa. Perceived as a threat to livestock, this spectacular bird has become one of the most persecuted bird species in the world. At Alvi’s Drift, we are actively taking steps to create an environment that will encourage and protect the martial eagle and other eagle species on our farm. Our winery honours this great eagle with a unique range of wines which encapsulates the boldness and elegance of this magnificent bird.VIEW FLAGSHIP RANGE

With our 221 range, we pay tribute to our family patriarch and our phenomenal Springbok rugby team.VIEW 221 RANGE
