The harmony of the natural elements bestowed upon Welgegund is the essence of our heritage and the driving force for the world class wines produced on our farm.
Welgegund was established in 1777. The heritage wines, all handcrafted from old character plantings on our farm in Wellington, celebrate a unique combination of the decomposed granite terroir, the exceptional light and the timeless mastery of the winemaker, and offer an enduring expression of the classic Cape wine tradition so globally envied of this region for centuries.

Ours is a lively and fruity extra virgin olive oil cold pressed from a blend of selected olive cultivars. The hand-picked fruit is all grown on our historic Cape farm. Oil aromas of freshly cut grass, green pepper, and a hint of lemon harmonise beautifully and reflect the unique growing conditions on this heritage farm in Wellington. More about our Olive Oil
This estate is perched at the foot of the magnificent Hawequa Mountains in the Western Cape. It was built in 1777 and was once the property of Cecil John Rhodes, the Prime Minister of the Cape Colony in the late 1800’s. It was the best fruit farm in the Boland. But, it has really blossomed as a wine farm, thanks to the ideal combination of terroir, climate, and expertise.
