More about this wine from Coastal Region, South Africa
The Western Cape of South Africa is basically where the mountains meet the ocean. And by mountains, we mean jagged rock that literally seems thrust straight out of the land sort of in a beauty competition with the sea as they stare at each other. It's safe to say, the Rainbow Nation is one of our all-time favorite wine regions and we've been obsessed with its vino for a long time.

Meet our new South African wine crush, Lubanzi, a socially Conscious Wine Co., crafting fairly produced wine that punches far above its weight and creates a difference in the lives of the laborers who live & work on South Africa's wine farms. The nose will bring you back to lazy childhood afternoons snacking on fresh Fruit Roll-Ups and Hershey's dark chocolate candy bars. The palate is lush, vibrant, fruity, and quite too easy to gulp.

How to drink it

While...

Holding down the fort during the polar vortex, and dreaming of a lush green lawn, the perfect picnic, and the delightfully warm summer sun.

Caribou - You and I

Eating...

This red blend is perfect on its own, or paired with movie night, but we're pairing it up with 5 different types of pork salami.
