OUR STORY

The roots of our community run deep.

OUR PEOPLE

The pursuit of making great South African wines that people enjoy is undertaken by the collaboration of many individuals, unified by singular vision. Among them are the farmers and workers, who cultivate the land; the viticulturists and winemakers, who usher the fruit to its ultimate end; and, office workers who bind it all together. Read More

THE BONNIEVALE EXPERIENCE

Experience authentic country hospitality at our child-friendly wine tasting room and shaded courtyard in Bonnievale. It was founding father Christopher Rigg who first named the place. To him, the “bonnie vale” was a haven of beauty, happiness, hospitality, and prosperity.

Here you can sample our unique, award-winning range – red wine, white wine, rosé wine, and sparkling wine too – also as part of a chocolate and wine pairing or with delectable cheese platters.

It is our pleasure to welcome you to our wine tasting room.

It’s Time To Reflect, But Not How You Imagine

Winter is often associated with looking back and the habit of reflection. Almost halfway through the year, we like to assess where we are and where we’re headed. Perhaps the darker months awaken a trace of hibernation in our DNA. Nonetheless, we might do our pondering alone, or reflect with...

Change is afoot, and there’s chocolate and wine to be had
