Yo El Rey

Angelo, who was born and raised in South Africa but is now based in London, makes small batch wines every year in Stellenbosch. He says “What was meant to be a year's hiatus snowballed into seven. I've met some incredible people and seen some amazing places, and without all of this, Yo El Rey would not exist.”

Yo El Rey means "I, the King", and was inspired by a young Pablo Picasso who signed an early self-portrait with this tagline. It's become a mantra that has propelled Angelo’s dream to make wine. He adds, “It's a reminder to always believe in both myself and my dreams, and to never, ever give up on the journey.”
