Come discover wine country that is quintessentially Tuscan in the heart of the Boland

Just like the vines have created and shaped a distinctive Mediterranean culture since Roman times, so they have woven their magic here in a tucked-away corner of the Western Cape. Nestled in the Hawequa mountains at the end of an oak-lined cul-de-sac in Wellington is Welgegund. This family-owned boutique wine estate rejoices in its South African roots whilst embracing the savoir-faire of the Continent.

Welgegund means well-bestowed and you don’t have to venture far to experience the fruits of its blessings. For the past decade the estate has been producing award-winning premium wines. In the Mediterranean, wine is a way of life and it is this philosophy that is celebrated at Welgegund. A passion for the land and its produce is savoured in every bottle.

Welgegund is the only farm in South Africa which bottles Carignan, a southern French grape varietal of Spanish origin. The well-known restaurant critic, Michael Olivier lists Welgegund Carignan 2004 in his book ‘Crush’ as one of the 100 South African wines you should be drinking now.

A visit to Welgegund, a scenic 50 minute drive from Cape Town, is a must for every connoisseur and wine lover.
