Our Story

Wellington Wines, where wines are born, is a customer driven producing cellar consistently supply their national and international market with a broad range of quality wines, true to Wellington, both in its terroir and people, delivered in bulk and bottle format, with continuous improvement and innovation.

Our wines are born on the shoulders of giants. Since 2013, Wellington Wines became the impressive blend and celebration of their three predecessors.

The rich history of three exceptional wineries paved the way for the birth of Wellington Wines. The beautiful heritage of Bovlei Winery, Wamakersvallei Winery and Wellington Co-operative Winery ultimately blended into the success story of Wellington Wines.

After the establishment of “Wellington Co-operative Winery” in 1906, the declaration of the “Bovlei Co-operative Winery” in 1907 and the founding of “Wamakersvallei Wines” in 1941, the accomplishments and passion with which these three wineries nourished the growth of the Wellington Wine industry, ultimately became the pillars on which Wellington Wines can now base their excellence. Our wines are born from years of combined history and experience in the wine industry.

Today Wellington Wines can compete in the international arena and produces wines of world-class quality because we can build on the proper foundation of our exceptional founders.

Our wines and heritage are a salute to our predecessors.  

The newly renovated Bovlei building, on the Bains Kloof Road (Wellington), serves as the official tasting room for Wellington Wines, where wines can be tasted in a homely atmosphere. Here, everyone will find something, even the younger guests, who can take part in the “kiddies wine tasting”. The venue is wheelchair friendly.
