Antioxidant-rich rooibos in novel winemaking patent
South Africa, known for its rooibos herb and wines, is home to a new winemaking technique that combines both. It is hailed as a revolutionary method to brew wine, beer and cider, eliminating the need for sulphur dioxide, which is a known allergen. According to research, rooibos and honeybush herbs, which are naturally caffeine-free and low in tannins, contain powerful antioxidants that may help preserve wine naturally. Audacia winery, which holds the patent in 83 jurisdictions, uses indigenous rooibos and honeybush wood chips in the wine making process instead of the traditional oak. The company already exports the wine to China and hopes the rest of the world will follow suit.
