Wine lover or not, a visit to the Cape Winelands is an absolute must in African luxury. A region of breathtaking vistas and majestic mountain backdrops steeped in rich culture and history.
Rolling vineyards and quaint Cape Dutch homesteads await you, as well as award-wining wine farms offering some of South Africa's best wines. Divided into distinct regions each with their own 'wine route'. The most popular and well-known are Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Wellington, Paarl and the Constantia Valley.
Located in Stellenbosch the farm of Welmoed™ was first granted to Governor Simon van der Stel in 1690. Celebrating centuries of proud winemaking tradition whilst embracing modern times, sold in over 29 countries and growing, it has built up a solid reputation both in South Africa and selected overseas markets. This proudly South African brand has launched a stunning new packaging that’s as distinctive as their hand-crafted wines.
The fresh, contemporary labels also better showcase the Welmoed range of premium wines, which are already known for delivering great value for just about any occasion– from sundowners and picnics to dinner parties and weddings. “The brand has evolved to portray Welmoed’s unique heritage on one of the Cape’s most historic farms, while at the same time embracing a more modern and elegant look that communicates the sense of quality and craftsmanship that we deliver as a proudly South African brand,” O’Shea continues,
