Winemaking Team: Annelie Viljoen - Viticulturist/Grape Buyer
Even though all her classmates wanted to become winemakers while completing her Honours degree in Oenology and Viticulture at Stellenbosch University, Annelie Viljoen, newly appointed viticulturist at the Adam Tas cellar and the first woman grape buyer to be appointed by Distell, chose the vineyards and the prospect of working outdoors over a career in the cellar.

Graham Beck - The Founder
Extraordinary visionary and remarkable man. The foundations for the success of the Graham Beck brand were laid in 1983 when the late Graham Beck purchased Madeba, a farm located outside the Western Cape town of Robertson.

Our History
Wine has been made in the Durbanville area from the end of the 17th century but it wasn't until the late 1990s when Durbanville Hills Wines was established.

Historical Buildings
La Motte boasts four provincial status (previously known as national) monuments - the Manor House (built in 1751), Jonkershuis (thought to have been built in 1752), Historic Cellar (built around 1782) and the Water Mill (erected between 1752 and 1793).

Wines & Vineyards
With careful and integrated farming methods Bellevue has succeeded in boasting with some of the oldest vineyards in South Africa.

Winemaking Team: Bonnie van Niekerk - Red Winemaker
Van Niekerk first joined the team as assistant winemaker in 2005, after completing her Diploma in Cellar Technology with a distinction at Elsenburg Agricultural College. Two years later, she secured the position as red winemaker at the cellar.

Experience
La Motte's completely redesigned and refurbished tasting facility, featuring a large fireplace for cosy winter tastings, has been highly commended for the inviting and friendly ambiance.

Nederburg Wines
Enter the gracious, welcoming gates to Nederburg and you will find a breathtaking blend of the traditional and the contemporary, just like its wines.

Our Wines
Kleine Zalze wines are marked by a classical structure and complexity matched by a vibrant flavour intensity. Discernibly South African in style, they are refreshing, beautifully balanced and well-suited to food.

Brand Story
In the 17th century, the Tailleferts were a prosperous family in the district of La Bri, in the Poitou-Charentes area of France. After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 this French Huguenot family boarded the Dutch East India Company’s ship Gosterland, bound for the Cape.
