The meaning of heritage

With more than a century of family wine-making behind us, we are honored to celebrate Weltevrede’s rich heritage during Heritage Month. This legacy was a major part of the inspiration behind our WELTEVREDE 1912 wines.

These wines are made as a tribute to honour our people, their hard work and values, their dreams, passions and preferences. In that spirit, the names of all the people who work on the Weltevrede Estate were included on the label.

The wines are, of course, very special to us. It represents more than a century of having the privilege to work the land and produce unique wines as part of this special place.

The WELTEVREDE 1912 Chardonnay Vintage 2014 is full-bodied, displaying a light golden colour. An intense mixture of dried mango, ripe pear and hints of ginger display on the nose. The palate reveals flavours of ripe lemons and marmalade.

With an intense mixture of berries and spice on the nose, the WELTEVREDE 1912 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage 2013 is full-bodied. It shows complex flavours of blue- and blackberries, pomegranate, white pepper and cedar on the palate.

Available from the cellar door, Makro and other major retailers, the wines retail for approximately R99.00 and R119.00 respectively.
