This winery between Robertson and Bonnievale produces around 40 wines, so there's something to suit everybody's palate. The 2011 Van Loveren Blanc de Noir Red Muscadel Blush and 2011 Van Loveren Neil’s Pick Colombar have both won Veritas awards. In addition to sampling the extensive wines, be sure to visit the unusual grounds of this family-owned and family-run farm. An established garden of indigenous and exotic plants and trees surrounds a water fountain that supplies the entire farm. Weather permitting, instead of visiting the usual tasting room, sit out under the trees and have the various wines brought to you. It's very relaxed and friendly, and you may feel like part of the family before you know it. The tasting room offers seven different tastings, including cheese and wine, chocolate and wine, and charcuterie and wine. There are even nonalcoholic tastings and a pairing for kids. As a broad-based black economic empowerment (BBBEE) deal, De Goree farm, which is 52% worker owned, signed a long-term grape-supply contract with Van Loveren Private Cellar. The farm has been profitable ever since, and Van Loveren Winery takes great pride in their involvement in this project.
