Bloemendal’s first cellar was completed in 1920 by the grandfather of present owner and vintner, Jackie Coetzee. His father continued the Estate’s concentration on winemaking by the planting of significant amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz in the early 1960’s. Building on the family’s winemaking tradition, Bloemendal was registered as an Estate in 1987. Concentrating on the noble cultivars, he sacrificed quantity in favour of quality, soon gaining a reputation locally and internationally for his award-winning, ’boutique’ style wines, widely known as the ‘the waterlily label’.
All Bloemendal wines are grown, made and bottled on the Estate. These wines are the result of a combination of modern cellar technology, atmospheric controlled barrel maturation cellars, limited quantity-high quality grapes and of course, the personal touch. Through controlled crop yield and vine growth to maturation that balances fruit and wood, Jackie has created a limited range of wines that have won both national and international recognition.
