#EllisSupportsSA: De Wetshof Estate
South Africa's ban on domestic sales has since been lifted but they still need our support which is why we are supporting the South African wine industry with our #EllisSupportsSA campaign. Now, more than ever, we need to #DrinkSouthAfrican, so for every 6 bottles sold from any of our five family-owned wineries, we will be donating £1 to Hospitality Action, the UK charity which supports thousands of people in the sector in these challenging times. Read more about what we are doing here.
Here, we introduce you to the third of our five wonderful producers: De Wetshof Estate.
The De Wet family were one of the earliest settlers arriving in the Cape in 1694. As pioneers in the wine business they have a natural instinct and huge commitment to viticulture in the Robertson region. Ideally located on the slopes overlooking the Breede River, and under the ownership of Danie de Wet, this estate is at the forefront of quality white wine production in the Cape.
The facade of the beautiful cellars is a replica of the historic first Customs House in Cape Town. Inside the building Danie and his team use the most innovative and modern wine-making equipment to craft wines of the highest quality. Internationally renowned and one of South Africa's most awarded wine estates. They also achieved an exceptional rating in South Africa's Business Social Compliance Initiative which implements the principle of international labour standards for their workers.
The following wines we have from this fantastic producer are:
Chardonnay Sur Lie ‘Bon Vallon’ 2019/20 (Half) £5.65
