Weltevrede is a Family owned and managed wine estate in the Robertson Wine Valley, close to the town of Bonnievale.
It began when Klaas Jonker purchased the farm in 1912 and planted the first vineyards in the area. He was followed by Japie Jonker, who in 1933 began wine farming on Weltevrede. Today, the tradition is carried on by current owner Philip Jonker.
Philip joined his father, Lourens Jonker, in 1997 as winemaker after qualifying at the University of Stellenbosch. He also gained valuable practical experience working at Clos du Val winery in the Napa Valley, California, as well as Chateau La Dominique in Saint Emilion, France.
Weltevrede has got a lot to offer our visitors. A tractor ride, wine tasting and accommodation is available as well as the restaurant and function venue.
One of the recent ventures is the launch of the Weltevrede Writers Studio on the Estate. This is for writers to come and be inspired with the beautiful surroundings and get insights from the 3000 + books available in the studio.
We invite you to join us on a journey through the WELTEVREDE EXPERIENCE
