PUBLIC PROFILE

Who are we?

It has always been Jacques' passion to experience the end result and effects of various clones of grape varieties, as reflected in the wine. Wines are made in open cement fermentation tanks and the skins are pushed through by hand. No finings are added, sulphur levels are kept as low as possible and all wines are unfiltered. Small oak barrels are used for storage. As Welvanpas, the cultivar range of grapes comprises of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chenin Blanc, Cape Riesling and the relatively newcomer, Roobernet. Here they decided not to fight nature and tend to let things go according to the climate, which makes Wellington so well suited for viticulture nursery production. The Welvanpas grapes mature at relatively high sugar contents, thus higher alcohol levels, but with the complexity, flavour and inherent "richness", which is characteristic of Wellington wines. It has been said that Wellington is one of the best kept secrets in South African wine circles.
