Wellington Wines

After the establishment of Wellington Co-operative Winery Ltd. in 1906, the declaration of Bovlei Co-operative Winery Ltd. in 1907 and the founding of Wamakersvallei Winery in 1941, the accomplishments and passion with which these three wineries nourished the growth of the Wellington Wine industry, ultimately became the pillars on which Wellington Wines can now base our excellence.

The members of Wellington Co-operative Winery Ltd. and Wamakersvallei Winery officially voted for an amalgamation of these two cellars at a meeting held on the 21st of December 2010. This decision marked the merger of two neighbours, both giants in the Wellington wine industry. The economic advantages and the vision of vitality and possibilities urged the role-players to come to this wise agreement.

The two “W’s” (Wellington and Wamakers) became one – this was the first step towards the birth of Wellington Wines.
On the 17th of January 2013, Bovlei Co-operative Winery Ltd. also became a part of Wellington Wines, and this second amalgamation ensured the continuation of a winemaking tradition that started in 1906.

The original reasons for the establishment of the Co-operative cellars in Wellington during the early 1900s were to promote the interests of the wine farmers and the progress of the local community. Wellington Wines still pay tribute to these principles and continue to build on the credo of our founders.

The principles for the existence of this new company are exactly the same as they were in 1906: in order to be a shareholder, you have to be a bona fide wine farmer.

Today, our 60 members, who are all farmers from Wellington and neighbouring areas of the Swartland and Paarl, work closely with our winemakers and viticulturists to ensure that only the best grapes are grown and selected for their outstanding quality.

Wine Making Process:

Grapes were picked at optimum ripeness. After de-stalking and crushing, the juice was separated from the skins. 

Only the 1st portion of the free run juice was utilised to ensure minimal colour extraction from the red grapes. Fermentation took place at 13 degrees celcius for a period of 2 weeks, after which the wine was fined, cold-stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes:

The 2022 White Pinotage has a subtle, onion skin hue reminiscent of Provencal blush wines, bursting with aromas of white peach, red apples, cherry, raspberry and a hint of cinnamon spice. A pleasing balance between the vibrant acidity and the mouth filling fruit flavours accentuates the palate's creamy smooth texture. This delightful finishes with a medley of summer berries and sweet and sour cherry flavours.

Best Enjoyed:
