About the winemaker
Riding Monkey began as a project between two friends, Deter, a winemaker from S. Africa and Nick, an ex-medic looking for the good life, and their love of riding motorcycles. When it comes to wine, Nick and Dieter share the same belief; the value of wine is only measured by the company you share it with. The term ‘riding monkey’ refers to the rider in the side car. So they both had this crazy idea, got side cars for their bikes and made some wine – the kind they want to drink. They make delicious, premium small batch wine that doesn't take itself too seriously. It is meant to be enjoyed in the moment and shared with good company.
