Robertson, South Africa
See Robertson Winery wines we sell
The charming little town of Robertson, established in 1852, is named after Dr William Robertson, a Scottish missionary who arrived in South Africa in 1822 and worked in the area. Robertson Valley is known as the “Valley of Wine and Roses” and is also known for its stud farms. Robertson Winery was established in 1941 and the first bottling was in 1987, before which time the grapes were presumably sold to a cooperative.
Today Robertson Winery sources its fruit from 35 growing families who work in close cooperation with viticulturist Brian Stipp. The winemaking team is headed up by Cellarmaster Bowen Botha who has been with them since 1982. In addition there are presently four winemakers who are involved in making wine for their various labels. In addition to the wine sent to the USA, which is value priced and over delivers as everyday wine, they have other labels and projects they are working on, including sparkling wine, premium wine and box wine.
