RED | BOLD 
A pretty serious red by people who are very serious about wine, good times and good laughs

WHAT WE TASTE
BBQ smoke, juicy cherries, black pepper

PERFECT PAIRING
Any beef or lamb dish you can think of, especially a BBQ, or end off the night pairing with mature hard cheeses

TEMP CHECK
When summertime hits, 20 minutes or so in the fridge can’t hurt

ABOUT LUDDITE 
“A dope-smoking political anarchist meets an upstanding young goody-goody sportsman at a mutual friends 21st” – 35 years and 3 kids later, they are the family behind Luddite Wines.  After a few years abroad, Niels and Penny returned to South Africa and found their plot of land in Bot River. Niels had a definite plan as to how he wanted to make wine and Penny knew that she wanted to farm as “green” as possible. Everything had to be about the wine. No intervention, no shortcuts and staying true to only bottling what, hand on heart was the best.

OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE
At Luddite, everyone who works there gets together in the kitchen for coffee in the morning. Everyone is part of a team and not just a farm labourer. They have only replaced 3 staff in 18 years – all growing old together. It’s a happy farm and Penny’s motto has always been “never ask someone else to do something that you won’t do”
