Van Loveren Wine Estate, Robertson Wine Valley
The original farm was acquired in 1937 by Hennie Retief (snr) and renamed after Christina van Loveren, an ancestor of Jean Retief, who arrived at the Cape in 1699.
The beautiful garden surrounding the Van Loveren cellar is the result of the dedication of Jean Retief, mother of Nico and Wynand.
Visitors are encouraged to enjoy the peace and tranquility the garden offers – also to taste wines in a relaxed, informal setting under the large shade trees, each with a history of its own.
Initially, only sweet fortified wines were produced on Van Loveren. In 1972 Nico and Wynand modernized the original cellar, which was built in 1963, introduced cold fermentation and started producing dry white wines.in 1980 these wines were introduced to the SA market under the Van Loveren label, and they are now available in all corners of the world. Despite international recognition and demand, Van Loveren remains loyal, first of all, to the local market.
The team has since expanded to include the third generation of Retiefs on Van Loveren. By 1998 both Wynand and Nico’s sons joined the farm and the new energy of this formidable team bodes well for future growth and innovation. All four the cousins are hands on involved on a day-to-day basis at Van Loveren. Hennie & Neil are the viticulturists ensuring top quality grapes for Bussell, the winemaker.
Van Loveren produces 23 different wines in its modern cellar. It has a range of cultivars that has married well to this fertile valley with us robust undertone of lime.
This range has earned an enviable reputation for quality, consistency, availability & accessibility. Many of the wines regularly features in the top selections of various wine clubs and amongst the medallists at national and international competitions.
With such an extensive range, (for more detailed information, see <B>WINES</B>) Van Loveren really offers a wine for every palate and occasion, not to mention the perfect partner to complement any cuisine.
