Van Loveren has three generations of winemaking history and offers excellent hospitality and spirit in all of their tastings and tours.

The Van Loveren Winery was formed in 1980, Despite a Previous Wholesale Business

The Retief Family currently owns the winery, as they bought the estate in 1937. Jean Retief convinced her husband, Hennie Sr., to name the winery Van Loveren because of her ancestral Dutch connections. In the early years, they made wine for brandy and sweet wines. In the 1960s, Nico and Wynand Retief started producing wines for wholesale. In 1980, the Van Loveren brand was formed, and the first 500 bottles of their top quality wines were bottled. The third generation of the winery took over in the 1990s. The sons of Wynand and Nico introduced the Four Cousins range of wines that are the biggest selling bottled wine of South Africa. The winery has three generations of winemaking history and offers excellent hospitality and business spirit. The climate, rainfall, and soil are perfect in the region for the cultivation of vines.

Main Grape Varieties Grown are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinotage, and Pinot Gris,

The main varieties of grapes they grow are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinotage, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Pinot Noir. The best grapes go into the production of their high-quality red, white, rose, dessert, sparkling, and fortified wines. The estate is also a great family tourism destination. Visitors were always welcome to their farmhouse and traditional round tasting room, rondavel, for a wine tasting.
