imagesLethal Weapon actor Danny Glover has teamed up with South African producer KWV to launch a new range of wines called African Passion.

Ten percent of the proceeds from sales of the wines will go to the TransAfrica Forum, an advocacy group in Washington DC focused on improving African education and human rights.

The wines have been developed specifically to help raise funds for the group, with Glover, a longterm human rights activist, serving as an ambassador for the brand.

The seven-strong range of single varietal wines, including a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Moscato, are made at the KWV cellar in Paarl from grapes grown in the Western Cape.

Launched by Glover in Washington DC last month, the African Passion range is now on sale throughout the US priced at US$10 a bottle, with each of the wines featuring an outline of the African continent on the label.
