That's right! The eagerly arrival of Meerkat Wines are know available exclusively in the UK at Charlie The Wine. And to tell you the truth we are absolutely ecstatic!
For those of you who are unaware of Meerkat Wines, here is a brief introduction into this fabulous wine producer.
Meerkat is a family-run wine producer who grow, produce and bottle their wine from the Welbedacht Wine Estate in Wellington, South Africa. Welbedacht is situated in one of the most picturesque wine regions which is ideally suited to the cultivation of world class wines. Welbedacht is home to and Meerkat is run by possibly one of the most famous sporting families in the country.... the Burger family. Both Schalk Burger Senior and Schalk Burger Junior have represented their country in rugby union, with Schalk Burger Junior being awarded arguably one of the greatest rugby union awards; the International Rugby Player of the Year in 2004.
One would think the Burgers' rugby mania would automatically dictate a label dedicated to the game. Not so! The Burger family wanted to create an image for their wine that is perceived as fun and witty, and so Meerkat Wines was born. Sticking to this amusing name, the Burger's have attached an effective slogan to their wine, which is labeling Meerkat Wine as "South Africa's Most Gregacious Wine" meaning it is very fond of company. Here at Charlie The Wine, we love how the Burger Family have closely linked their image to the familiar characteristics of a meerkat itself.
Meerkat's wines are extremely good value-for-money along with being incredibly versatile allowing them to quickly become best sellers. With an impressive award winning selection of White wines, Red wines, Rose wines and Blends, I am positive that you will be a massive fan of "South Africa's Most Gregarious Wine" in no time at all.
So keep your eyes peeled, as the unveiling of Meerkat to Charlie The Wine is very, very soon.
