Kaapse Familie Wingerde is made up of three Boland families – Le Roux, Loubser, De Waal – who have over 30 generations combined experience in the Cape wine industry.
Each of the three families has individually also been involved with the growing of grapes for more than 100 years in his own area. As a result the members of the group have an in-depth knowledge of all the factors that may have an influence on his environment and terroir. From here stems the fact that each one knows which cultivar will perform the best in each area of his terroir.
The ancestors of the Le Roux family from Vendome in Paarl, arrived with the French Huguenots in the Paarl Valley in 1688 and today their offspring are growing grapes at the beautiful Vendome in Paarl. They are also eminently involved in their community, through which they are contributing enormous value to the valley.
The Loubser family have been farming for more than 150 years in the Philadelphia area and their ancestors have a unique bond with their terroir. Their long-term vision allows them to establish lasting effects in the agriculture and to live by their philosophy in a palpable way to farm in an ecological friendly manner in their environment.
The progenitor of the De Waal family from Oude Denneboom in Voor-Paardeberg have established themselves in the Voor-Paardeberg after the family have grown vineyards and produced wine for generations. They also have a long-term obligation to their terroir, which stems from the fact that a third of the farm has been set aside for conservation.
The Loubser, Le Roux and De Waal families that have over generations come together as winemaking families have seen a unique opportunity to bind their forces together within Kaapse Familie Wingerde.
