Audacia is a 32-hectare wine farm situated in – Stellenbosch. It is part of the country’s oldest and most established wine route. The farm lies in the gently sloping Bonte River Valley and is part of the renowned ‘Golden Triangle’, a unique patch of land at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain. This area is acclaimed for producing some of South Africa’s best red wines, particularly Shiraz. It’s for this reason – and the fact that its vineyards are exclusively planted to red grape varieties – that Audacia dubs itself “The Red Wine Boutique Winery”. Audacia was founded in 1930 and remained in the Louw family until 1996 when it was sold to the Strydom family, with the Harris family becoming partners in 2002. These families remain proud custodians of the Audacia heritage and continue to push the boundaries when making the unique red wines the farm has become famous for.
