Roodeberg, the legendary red blend that’s been bringing friends together since 1949, celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. A true South African original that’s stood the test of time, the wine was developed by a pioneer of the SA wine industry, Dr Charles Niehaus, and was one of our country’s biggest export wine brands. It wasn’t until 2004 that it became readily available to us here at home … and for a long while, locals could only get their hands on a bottle through a wine farming acquaintance with a KWV quota. The stories go that bartering sought-after test match tickets, biltong and the like in return for a bottle or two was a common occurrence. For many, Roodeberg still conjures up fond memories of people, places and occasions and of sharing special life-changing moments with family and friends, often with rare vintages squirrelled away.
