Welgegund Heritage Wines

Nestled in the Hawequa mountains at the end of an oak-lined cul-de-sac in Wellington, lies Welgegund Heritage Wine Estate. A place of natural beauty, with historic buildings dating back to the 1820’s and some of the Cape’s most coveted land for vineyards, this family owned boutique wine farm rejoices in its African roots.
