McGregor Winery, Owned by the Thirty-Three Grapegrowers in the Robertson Wine Valley
The McGregor Winery was established in 1948 and is currently located at the southern end of the Robertson Wine Valley. The winery lies nestled between the stunning hills of the Riviersonderend Mountains. Thirty-three farmers grow around fourteen thousand tons of grapes every year and combine their efforts to produce excellent South African wines. The McGregor village was initially known as “”Lady Grey”” in honor of the Cape Governor’s wife, Eliza. Another town in the Eastern Cape had the same name, and it was confusing for the officials at the time, so in 1906, the name of the village was changed to McGregor, by the authorities, in honor of their loved church pastor.
