Adi Badenhorsts skill as a winemaker is well acknowledged note his appointments to Rustenberg and his membership in South Africas premier winemaking association, The Cape Winemakers Guild ‒ so when he decided to produce approachable wines at $10, he chose partners with a similar philosophy towards quality, Michael and Bartholomew Broadbent.
Founded in 2012, Adi sources grapes solely from the Swartland region, the same area from which he produces his estate wines for A.A. Badenhorst. The Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Shiraz, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Viognier are planted on one of three types of granite soil (specifically Paardeberg, Lammershoek and Lemoenfontein) and dry-farmed. The hand-picked fruit is chilled overnight and fermented naturally.
|Indio Spirits is a spirits distillery located just outside of Portland in Beaverton, Oregon. Our products are of superb quality and provide the best possible value to our customers at affordable prices.
Created through the foresight and vision of John Ufford, chairman and CEO, Indio Spirits was incorporated in July 2004.
In 2005, Robert G. Turner, a well-respected spirits industry veteran joined the company as President and partner. That year, we also introduced our Indio Silver, Marionberry and Lemongrass-Lime vodkas.
In 2006, Indio Spirits – in association with the Snake River Stampede Rodeo (one of the top 10 PRCA rodeos) – introduced our extremely popular Snake River Stampede 8-year-old Canadian whisky. During that time period, we also added to our flavored vodka products by introducing Blood Orange as well as Cricket Club Gin.
