In 1941, Giepie Rossouw and Alwyn Bruwer convinced a number of other Robertson Valley growers to form a winery in which all families would own a share.
Naming their winery after Scottish minister Dr William Robertson who settled in the area in 1822. Families purchased an abandoned missionary church built in the late 1880s to house their new winery. Pon van Zyl served as Robertson Winery’s first winemaker and took Robertson from its humble beginnings to being the third largest winery in South Africa.
In 1984, van Zyl handed the reins over to Bowen Botha, under whose guidance Robertson Winery has become a global brand, recognized for the quality and value of its wines.
