“My vision for the wines of Weltevrede is to be a pure expression of the terroir in which it is rooted. Our wines should have personality dictated by the soil. It should have a sense of place.”
PHILIP JONKER BRUT
“Commitment the energy of spontaneous laughter to have fun to dream to love, and be loved . . .
These are reasons to celebrating every day.”
“In a world where we are bombarded with information and images, we saw the need for a clear-cut and striking concept that makes sense simply by looking at the bottle.”
“With a heritage to be proud of, Weltevrede continues to produce inspired wines, nurtured to express the qualities of their unique terroir and people.”
“I know the soils of Weltevrede. I grew up playing in them, as did my father and his father before him, ever since my great-grandfather bought this land in 1912” – Philip Jonker
“Even though they were planted back in 1926 the vines in “Oupa se Wingerd” are still producing sweet Muscadel grapes to this day.”
