About the wine

Vivacious blend from your 1st Winemaker of the Year!
  • With rugged texture and exquisite depth, Carmen’s triumphant blend is layered with brambly berry, rustic spice – the perfect red for a flame-kissed, peppery steak or a wedge of creamy cheese.

  • With her $100,000 cash prize, Carmen created this one-of-a-kind red from prestigious wine regions Stellenbosch and Elgin. The fruit was handpicked and aged 10 months in expensive oak barrels – and with your support, this luxe wine is yours for a serious steal.

  • When Carmen became your first Winemaker of the Year back in 2015, it gave her even more firepower to craft a vivacious red blend that embodies the delicious flavors of South African wine – and her gratitude for the support you’ve given her all these years.

Best before
Ready to drink now, but can also age 5-7 years.

Serving advice
Let this wine breathe for about 30 to 45 minutes before enjoying.

Food match
Delicious with carpaccio and ciabatta that's fresh from the oven.

Meet the winemaker - Carmen Stevens

  • Angels funded the first black woman to graduate in winemaking in South Africa, beating all the odds. And you gave her a shot at making her own wine.
  • She works for a super-premium, top drawer, American-owned, no expense spared, mega award-winning winery in South Africa, and you're going to get access to all her talent at a fraction of the cost.
  • And with Angel funding (Over $200,000 invested in just 8 hours!), Carmen is branching out and making her own project wines. Just for you!
