Located in Stellenbosch, the farm of Welmoed dates back to 1690 when it was first granted to Governor Simon van der Stel. A Dutch Vryburger by the name of Jacobus van der Heyden inherited the Welmoed farm afterwhich he rebelled against the Governor Willem van der Stel's unethical behaviour. When van der Heyden refused to retract his statement about the crooked governor, he was imprisoned and only released when his health deteriorated badly. Upon his release, the communicaty said: "Deze vent heft wel moed", which translates into "this chap does have courage."
Over the years many great wines have been made at the home of Welmoed, with numerous awards both locally and internationally. Our Welmoed range carries the rich heritage that is inspired by the historic tale of courage.
