Ex-Melbourne sommeliers David and Jeannette Clarke relocated to Cape Town, South Africa, in January 2013. A small number of South African wineries surprised them with interesting, delicious and unique wines. Recognising the fact that South Africa is still grossly under-exposed in Australia, they became increasingly excited about being able to introduce and offer these to you. Thus the Ex Animo Wine Company was born. Ex Animo means “from the heart”, and this encapsulates the philosophy and passion the Clarkes share with their producers: for the vineyards they tend and the wines they make from them.
