in the vineyard : Oupa se wingerd (Granddad’s vineyard) is the first vineyard designated wine and the only vineyard declared a National Monument in South Africa.

in the cellar : The Robertson-Bonnievale area has been renowned for its famous dessert wines from the Muscat varieties, mostly Red and White muscadel. Weltevrede Wine Estate was the first estate in South Africa to produce a dessert wine from the scarce cultivar Muscat de Hambourg in 1977, and is presently still the only estate to produce this rare wine.

Grown in light, sandy soil, it makes a heavier, fuller wine than the better known Red Muscadel, with a dark red colour which it holds well, and all the qualities required for successful ageing.

The grapes were harvested at 24 degrees Balling, crushed and left on the skins to extract maximum character and colour for a minimum period of 24 hours after which it was fortified with specially matured wine spirits.
