Two Gold Medals from the Michelangelo Wine Awards

Michelangelo wine awards gold medal wines from Weltevrede

Judged by a handpicked panel of judges from around the world, the Michelangelo International Wine Awards are a true highlight of the wine calendar. This year our wines took two gold medals.

The Weltevrede Bedrock Black Syrah 2015 is made from a single vineyard where the vines are rooted in solid rock. This results in very small grapes with intense flavour. The wine spent 18 months in first fill French Oak.

The grapes for the Weltevrede Philip Jonker Brut Entheos are hand-picked and pressed in small bunches. The wine matures on the lees for 18 to 24 months. This creates a pale coloured Cap Classique with a slight green tinge and a delicate stream of bubbles gliding to the surface. Enjoy it at its best on its own, or with oysters and sushi.

Support the Jakes Gerwel Entrepreneurial School

Construction on the Jakes Gerwel Entrepreneurial School is on schedule for a January 2018 opening. The school is mostly self-funded by the community and donations from the public.

The community of Bonnievale has tackled the chronic shortage of high schools in their area head-on, raising millions of Rands and partnering with the provincial education department to build a new school.

The Jakes Gerwel Entrepreneurial School in Bonnievale is just R3.5 million away from fully funding their first phase. The school has enrolled Gr. 8 learners, appointed teachers and building work is on schedule for a January 2018 opening! The school funding trust appeals to the public to support this remarkable project to improve the futures of thousands of our most vulnerable kids.

The project is our community’s answer to a crisis that exists throughout South Africa. A chronic shortage of high schools spells a bleak future for thousands of disadvantaged kids in rural areas. These kids would have had to travel to neighbouring towns for high school, making them much more likely to drop out altogether.

2017 harvest at Weltevrede the Jonker Family Wine Estate

Philip Jonker, Weltevrede owner and winemaker, writes about the harvest 2017:

We initially suspected this would be a small harvest, since we expected smaller berries due to the dry season.
However, we’ve been able to have our cake and eat it! The harvest turned out to be larger than last year’s and we got perfectly healthy grapes thanks to dry conditions.

Swing by for a unique experience

If you’re planning a visit to our valley, be sure not to miss the guided tour of our underground tunnels, a unique experience in timelessness.

It includes a wine tasting by candlelight in the cisterns that were built generations ago with stones brought up from the Breede River by donkey cart.

We’re a convenient detour off the N2 and Route 62, if you’re not in a hurry while travelling along these popular holiday routes. And if you’d like to make a weekend of it, consider staying in one of our self-catering cottages. Also have a look at all the great activities in Bonnievale and the Robertson Valley.

Booking for the underground tasting is essential, as it is a personal, guided experience. Just give us a call on +27 23 616 2141 to book.

The T-Touch Classic from Tissot is a very stylish rolex replica uk that would be desirable whether it had touch-driven technology or not. I'm a great fan of replica watches sale, especially of manufacturers who try to incorporate the latest technology. Watch makers like Rado and rolex replica uk are desired and loved because of the way they marry technology with beauty. Tissot watches, I feel, is one such watchmaker. I've been a fan of rolex replica for years. I like just about the entire collection from Panerai but there's one that, for me, that is special - the rolex replica uk. Panerai started making watches for the Italian navy. The company is now Swiss based. The overall look and design of replica watches sale hasn't changed that much since they were first manufactured.
