Home to Welbedacht wines, the Schalk Burger and Sons wine estate is situated in one of the Cape's most picturesque wine regions, Wellington, which is ideally suited to the cultivation of world class wines. This beautiful farm is nestled into the northwest side of Groenberg and offers expansive views, serene farm-style ambience and a range of extraordinarily good wines. Not to mention some great rugby memorabilia that you will be able to look at while having a wine tasting, as both Mr Burger and his son Schalk Jr wrote some of the best pages in South African Rugby with the Springboks!

Did You Know...? Schalk Burger and Sons must be the only wine estate to propose a cricket oval on their premises... I would suggest you train a little if you want to play against the owners...They are not good ONLY at rugby!!!
