If you’re in the vicinity this summer holiday, drop by for a unique experience in timelessness with a guided tour of our underground tunnels.
It includes a wine tasting by candlelight in the cisterns that were built generations ago with stones brought up from the Breede River by donkey cart.
We’re a convenient detour off the N2 and Route 62, if you’re not in a hurry while travelling along these popular holiday routes. And if you’d like to make a weekend of it, consider staying in one of our self-catering cottages. Also have a look at all the great activities in Bonnievale and the Robertson Valley.
Booking for the underground tasting is essential, as it is a personal, guided experience. Just give us a call on +27 23 616 2141 to book.

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. Read more ›
Spring! It’s the season of new beginnings, love and happiness, and gorgeous Spring weddings. At Weltevrede we love to play a part in making your special day the best day of your life.
What better way to do this than to have your wedding at our picturesque countryside venue? The backdrop of breath-taking vineyards and distant mountains is simply stunning. You feel the relaxed atmosphere the moment you step out of the car on our farm. The beautiful Breede River right in our backyard helps create an atmosphere of serenity and simplicity. It makes it really hard to stress too much, even on such an auspicious occasion!
We offer options to suit not only your style and the size of your guest list, but also the feel of your wedding. You can opt for a banquet-style, barrel lit, cellar wedding with up to 200 guests. Or have a bistro-style outdoors “under the vines” wedding in our courtyard that is suitable for smaller wedding parties.
We can also assist with all the planning to take even more of the potential stress out of the event! We can supervise the decoration of the wedding venue and recommend services such as hair stylists, make-up artists, flower arrangers, décor specialists, photographers, accommodation, etc.
Trust us, between the warm hospitality and the natural beauty of the Breede River Valley, you’ll wish your wedding day never ends.
Spring is in the air competition! We and we are in the mood to celebrate life. So, this month we’re giving away a case of our most enthusiastic MCC.
We’re asking fans on our Facebook and Twitter to tell us about or post a picture of the first sign of spring that inspires them. Anything goes, from the first blossoms or sprouting leaves on a tree, to a warm breeze or the first time you choose shorts over jeans to relax in.
The winner of the competition will win a case of our Entheos Méthode Cap Classique.
This delicate wine is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with the grapes riper to show richness and attractive fruit at an earlier stage. The wine matures on lees for up to three years. It boasts a lively mousse, creamy biscuit on the palate and long aftertaste.
A vibrant Cap Classique to celebrate every day, Entheos is named for the Greek word that means ‘the God within’. For us this wine embodies enthusiasm, inspiration, ardour, fervor, fire and passion. For us this wine embodies enthusiasm, inspiration, ardour, fervor, fire and passion. You can read the competition terms and conditions here.

Wacky Wine Weekend was so much fun!
Thanks to everyone who spent some time with us.
Our featured event for Wacky Wine Weekend 2016 is a rare treat. Our owner and chardonnay expert Phillip Jonker will be presenting a special tasting of this cultivar to small groups in our magnificent underground cellar.
As emphasised by this recent interview, the Robertson area has a well-deserved reputation as chardonnay country. Favourable terroir adds character to to the wines, making them some of SA’s best and garnering international recognition.
This is a playground for an expert like Jonker, who spent time in the Old World cradle of the cultivar, learning the secrets of chardonnay in a centuries-old cellar in Burgundy.
This intimate tasting promises to be a delightful adventure for your senses. There will only be five tastings, so early booking is absolutely essential.
To book, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Tasting times: Thursday, 2 June, 14H00-15H00; Friday, 3 June, 12H00 & 16H00; Saturday 4 June, 10H00 & 12H00. Cost: R70 pp
