Niels and Penny Verburg started Luddite Wines while Niels was still the winemaker at Beaumont in Bot River. Twenty years later Luddite, above the town of Bot River, is one of the icon wine producers of the entire Overberg region. As the name Luddite suggests, the Verburgs favour a lo-fi approach to farming and winemaking. They seek to produce wines of character, interest, texture and uniqueness. Penny looks after the vineyards, and Niels is in charge in the cellar. Their daughter Alice has recently joined her father in the winery.
