See Rosé.



*A quick note about natural wines: natural wines are not simply organic. Generally, the term is applied to vineyards who reject today’s sophisticated winemaking technology, and seek to produce wine in the same manner they did a century ago.  This means the yeast they use tends to be wild, sulfites are usually not added, and the vineyard’s environmental impact is minimal.

About Us

Luddites is bookstore, wine bar and a safe haven for people who want to evade the digital world, in pursuit of quietude or Bacchic bliss. Housed in a historic building in the center of Antwerp, we offer the largest selection of English books in the city, as well as a great selection of Dutch books. Hidden just up the stairs is a wine bar where customers can enjoy an exceptional but affordable glass of wine.

Luddites is a project dreamed up by Richard Bolte and Jorien Caers on one dark, stormy night. We think was also the Ides of March or something—but, like, in October of 2018. After more than a year of planning, renovating and deciding we're never ever coming near a can of paint again, Luddites officially opened its doors on the 5th of March 2020.



Luddites is not a French word and is not pronounced like “crudités.” Luddites believed in Luddism and claimed to be followers of Ned Ludd, a largely fictional character probably based on King Lud of Britain, who was also largely fictional. Thus, it is pronounced luh-daits, just like supporters of King James II’s claim to the throne were called Jacobites (ja-kub-baits).
