Weltevrede Wine Estate
Everybody at Weltevrede, the Jonker Family Estate, are extremely proud of the century of family wine farming we celebrated last year. So, imagine our delight to be nominated for a Heritage award in the 2013 Klink Wine Tourism awards in our 101st year!
The awards let the wine-loving public choose the winners by voting in each of 11 categories. You can vote once in each category from each of your Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as all your e-mail accounts. The Klink Awards also have weekly draws in which voters can win great South African wine experiences. We're facing some stiff competition from some of SA's best known wineries, so we'd really appreciate your votes in this category. To vote, just follow this link.

Everything old is new again
When we renovated the oldest building on our farm to create the Ons Huise self-catering cottage, it was a very satisfying undertaking. After all, the building is also the oldest in the entire town of Bonnievale.

Having it nominated as Best Self-Catering Accommodation on a Wine Farm in the 2013 Klink Wine Tourism Awards is an unexpected pleasure and just serves to underscore the new lease on life the house is enjoying.

Ons Huisie is currently the runner-up in this category of the awards, with another month of voting left. If you'd like to help it win, please vote here
