Nabygelegen in Wellington has a very old history of winemaking. The original cellar building, dating back to well before its inscribed 1815 gable date, has old, open concrete fermenting tanks, stone foot presses and underground storage tanks. It’s believed that the old cellar was built during the very charismatic ownership of the wonderful Lady Anna Lategan. The predominant use of Chenin Blanc on the wine results in superb and distinctive ripe melon flavours, while a splash of Sauvignon and a dash of Semillon add flinty mineral notes.

This robust red is named after Steenberg’s intrepid 17th century founder, Catharina Ustings Ras, who truly stood out in her time as the first female land owner in Africa and a true eccentric with a ground-breaking attitude towards life. Life was not easy when Catharina arrived in South Africa, only ten years after Jan van Riebeeck landed. This being no place for a lone widow of twenty-two, she immediately found herself a second husband, Hans Ras. He was not a particularly eligible catch; a free burger with a penchant for female slaves, but he had a house on the Liesbeek River. Once the wedding knot was tied, Catharina’s life seemed to take on the dramatic overtones, which marked its course from that day forward.

Sally Lady Graaff, whose first name is Winifred, is the inspiration behind the wine produced by De Grendel. The Winifred, a white blend of 45% Semillon, 45% Viognier and 10% Chardonnay, was named after Lady Graaff, the wife of Sir David Graaff, 3rd Baronet. Lady Graaff explains that her father-in-law would always consider Sir David’s suggestions to name the De Grendel calves after his girlfriends. This means that there is not only a wine named after Lady Graaff, but of course a cow too.
