At Welgegund, we invite you to sip, savour and celebrate the Mediterranean way of life. A visit to Welgegund, a scenic 50 minute drive from Cape Town, is a must for connoisseurs and wine lovers.

In the heart of the Boland

Just as vines created and shaped a distinctive Mediterranean culture since Roman times, so they have woven their magic here in a tucked-away corner of the Western Cape. Nestled in the Hawequa mountains at the end of an oak-lined cul-de-sac in Wellington is Welgegund. This family-owned boutique wine estate rejoices in its South African roots whilst embracing the savoir-faire of the awakening Continent.

Our Wines

For the past decade the estate has been producing award-winning premium wines. In the Mediterranean, wine is a way of life and it is this philosophy that is celebrated at Welgegund. A passion for the land and its produce is savoured in every bottle. It is this character that inspires us at Welgegund; not just in our variety of Mediterranean grapes but in our landscape, our lifestyle and the joie de vivre it brings to our wine making.
