Introducing Longavi Glup

"Glu Glu ... easy! Just pick a bottle of Glup Chenin Blanc or Cinsault. Open it. Drink it. You will understand the meaning!"

Glup was created by two friends: Julio Bouchon, Chilean winemaker extraordinaire and David Nieuwoudt, famous South African winemaker from Cederberg and Ghost Corner Wines. Julio and David have been producing spectacular wines in Chile's Leyda Valley since 2012.

Leopard's Leap Natura

Introducing Leopard's Leap de-alcoholised white and red wine to the Meridian Portfolio.

With ever-increasing consumer demand for wine without alcohol, we are delighted to extend our offering to cater for this growing market.

The grapes for Leopard's Leap Natura are sourced from cool climates and harvested at the optimum ripeness. With minimal intervention in the winemaking process, the alcohol is only removed via a spinning cone once the winemaker is completely satisfied with the quality of the wine.  Natura Classic White and Classic Red are wines that alcohol-free, vegan-friendly, low in calories and delicious.
