Winery Details

About the Winery

Van Loveren has been in the Retief family since 1937 when Hennie Retief snr acquired the land in the Robertson Valley and named it after Christina van Loveren, an ancestor of his new bride, Jean van Zyl. When his sons, Nico & Wynand joined him on the farm they acquired more land and in 1980, 500 cases of Premium Grand Cru, the first bottled Van Loveren wine, was launched.


Today Nico and Wynand’s sons are running the company side by side. Hennie and Neil are the viticulturists, Bussell the winemaker and Phillip looks after the commercial side of the business. From humble beginnings Van Loveren has grown to become South Africa’s leading family-owned winery, known for the consistency, availability and quality of their wines as well as innovation.
