The company of wine people TM has strengthened its foothold in The People’s Republic of China by launching Welmoed Wines, one of South Africa’s established household wine brands into this market. The brand will initially launch two red wines, a Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
It’s the first time that Welmoed is introduced to the Chinese consumer. According to Brand and Business Development Manager for Asia, Mark Lester, the brand is aimed specifically at a market segment that seeks a premium wine offering for their purchase.
“Welmoed is a brand that really over-delivers when it comes to quality at its price point. We’ve worked extensively with our partners on the brand to achieve the consumer cues required to succeed and we’re confident we’ll see consumers reacting positively to this South African favorite.”

John Botham’ Cape Winelands art exhibition was recently held at our Welmoed cellar.
Botham paints the beauty of landscape, of creation, and of simply magical moments, such as the break of day.
His amazing work is still on display at our cellar door so please visit us for some art and wine.
With its proud winemaking tradition and rich history dating back to 1690, what better way to celebrate our country’s diverse cultural legacy on Heritage and Braai4Heritage Day than enjoying Welmoed wines while braaing with family and friends.
Celebrated on 24 September annually, the government has described Heritage Day as an opportunity to celebrate “aspects of South African culture which are both tangible and difficult to pin down: creative expression, our historical inheritance, language, the food we eat as well as the land in which we live”.
Our wines seamlessly incorporate our rich history with a modern, approachable wine style, and pair perfectly with South Africa’s “national meal” of braaivleis and boerewors.
To further celebrate our heritage, Welmoed is giving two people the chance to win a weekend away to one of SA’s heritage sites.

Boerewors is one of the traditional South African delicatessens and is much more versatile than people may think.
A boerewors quiche, for instance, is a lovely way to serve something different by using common ingredients.
Recommended wine: The Welmoed Merlot will complement this dish perfectly.
Boerewors quiche recipe:
Keep Flying is a simple idea. An idea that matters. And an idea that belongs to all of us .It believes that its all of our responsibility to fly the flag. Every South African Brand; Every South African, and to recognize what the flag symbolizes: Us, and our unity.
A unity that brought the World’s Greatest Tournament to life in a way only we could. A unity that still reverberates across continents a world away. A unity that says to the world, and ourselves: “Hear us, each one of us, as one. Our time has truly come”

The team from Holland arrived in the Cape Town for their final group match against Cameroon and a sea of orange has swept through the Mother City.
“Die Kaap is weer Hollands” is a famous South African saying and with all the Dutch tourists in the Cape and the close by winelands, it really seems that the Cape is “Hollands” again.
The Dutch has won all their games thus far and they are poised for a clash with Italy or Paraguay in the next round. I’ve seen many Dutch tourists in the Winelands this week and a few groups also visited Welmoed’s tasting room.
They have the best team bus slogan of: “Don’t fear the big five , fear the Orange eleven” and hopefully they can go all the way.
I thought it would be cool to translate this into Dutch:
” Die Kaap is weer Hollands ” is een beroemde Zuid-Afrikaan die zegt en met alle Nederlandse toeristen in de Kaap en sluiten door winelands, schijnt het werkelijk dat de Kaap is Hollands opnieuw.
De Nederlanders hebben al hun spelen tot zover gewonnen en zij zijn in evenwicht gehouden voor een conflict met Italië of Paraguay in de volgende ronde. Ik heb vele Nederlandse toeristen in Winelands deze week gezien en een paar groepen bezochten ook de proevende ruimte van Welmoed.
Zij hebben de beste slogan van de teambus van “Don’t fear the big five , fear the Orange eleven” en hopelijk kunnen zij gaan al manier.
