Your Winemaker of the DecadeRead more
Rudi Schultz hails from something of a golden generation, having grown up in a family of 5 brothers, three of them would eventually go on to become winemakers.
Having learnt his craft under the tutelage of SA wine legend Gyles Webb, Rudi launched his own winery in 2002 and caught the attention of critics straight away, with rave reviews for his maiden vintage Syrah. Since then, he’s made a string of critically-acclaimed, top-shelf wines from Stellenbosch and the Western Cape, which you now get to enjoy first-hand.
In his spare time, Rudi teaches surfing and ocean safety in his local community. In fact, he’s such a keen surfer, all of his wines are named after famous surf spots. So just pour yourself a glass of Pepper Street and dive right in. Cowabunga!
Adam first got into winemaking in 2001 and after a few years of hard graft for iconic brands like Wynns Coonawarra and Bonny Doon in the USA and Oz, he finally took the leap to go it alone in 2008. On his own, he made some absolutely stellar wines that got rave reviews from the critics and his new set-up was even named one of the Top 10 Best New Wineries by legendary Aussie wine boff James Halliday.
Then in 2012, Adam heard about Naked Wines and our mission to shake-up the wine industry. And the more he heard about how we work and our lovely Angels, the more he wanted to be a part of it. He popped us an email and the rest is history... since going Naked, Adam’s career has gone from strength to strength and he now wows over 300,000 UK Angels with top-quality exclusive wines. He’s eternally grateful for your support.
The reason Adam’s kit is so special is because of his attention to detail. He learned early on that to make the best kit you need the best fruit and that means knowing the vineyard intimately. Every single grape he uses is either from his own vineyard or from the close-knit family of local growers he’s worked with for over 10 years.
