    “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

    In The Vineyard
    SOIL: Anchored in the ancient lime rich terroir of Weltevrede. VINEYARD: An extremely small selection of old vines offering the desired balance of complexity and minerality.
    Poetry. Maybe you have also been prompted to scribble a few words on paper before. Raw words. From deep within. And no matter what others think of those words, they are yours. And they are charged with feeling of love or tears. Hardship brings out the best in Chardonnay. Roots d i g g i ng deep among crack so f ancient rocks in arid terroir. Greatness doesn’t come without brokenness. Only the best years finally find their way to the bottle. Poet’s Prayer in an art piece. A rare wine.
