Audacia

NO SULPHITES OR PRESERVATIVES ADDED

Audacia is a boutique winery specialising in red wines. It is owned by the Strydom and Harris families and is situated in Stellenbosch’s prime vine growing region.

The farm is perfectly positioned on the banks of the Bonte River at the foot of the majestic Helderberg Mountain.

The name ‘Audacia’ is synonymous with a spirit of adventure and boldness.

These characteristics are epitomised in an audacious approach to viticulture and winemaking.

The Audacia brand strives to distinguish itself by producing original, terroir-specific blends and single cultivar wines, including a unique range of ‘healthier option’ wines.In 2014 Audacia launched the world’s first – “No Sulphites or Preservatives Added” red wine created by using indigenous Aspalathus linearis (Rooibos) and Cyclopia genistoides (Honeybush) toasted wood chips.

The wine, a merlot from the 2013 harvest, became the first of an exciting range of ‘healthier option’ wines made according to this method
