Passing the 100 year history mark of family winemaking at Weltevrede we took time to reflect what exactly it is that makes this patch of land so special. We realized that the Weltevrede terroir equation includes more than our ancient geology and specific climate, it also includes those people who have lived here and worked this land for more than a century. We honour these people, their hard work and values, their dreams and passions and preferences.
