Van Loveren Family Vineyards has been in the Retief Family since 1937 when Hennie Retief snr acquired land in the beautiful Robertson valley, South Africa and named it after Christina Van Loveren, an ancestor of his new bride, Jean van Zyl. When his sons Nico and Wynand joined him in 1980, 500 cases of Premium Grand Cru, the first bottles Van Loveren wine, was launched. Today, 80 years later we harvest over 14 000 tons of grapes from 600 ha of vineyards. The 3rd generation, the Four Cousins are now running operations with Hennie and Neil as the Virticulturists, Bussell the cellar master and Phillip looking after the business side of things. From humble beginnings Van Loveren has grown to become South Africas leading family-owned winery, known for our consistency, quality and innovation.
