in the vineyard : Planted in 1962, these bush vines are frail but still offering their crop every year. A blend of Red Muscadel and Muscat du Hambourg is made from ancient vines. This is the only vineyard in South Africa to be declared a Conservation Worthy Property by the Board of National Monuments. The picture on the label is that of my great-grandfather, the founder of Weltevrede.

about the harvest: Grapes from old bush vine Red muscadel and Muscat du Hambourg are picked at 25° Balling.

in the cellar : The skins are punched down for 24 hours to extract some colour into the juice. The next morning the juice is pressed and fortified with neutral wine spiritus.
