When Stellenview Premium Wines founder, winemaker and entrepreneur, Reino Kruger established the brand in 2009 (primarily for export markets to the Far East) it made perfect sense to pay homage to his family with one of the ranges, namely the Kruger Family Reserve wines.  The Kruger Family heritage dates back to the early 1700โ€™s with the first settlers to South Africa.

The young, creative and talented Kelly-Marie Jacobs has been appointed as Zonnebloemโ€™s white winemaker. Her career to date has been paved by inspiring people and a natural affinity for making wines. Her connection to Stellenbosch runs deep with her grandparents originally from the town where they met at the Stellenbosch train station. But it was a magazine article about winemaker Debbie Thompson, now Cellar Master at Simonsig, which initially sparked her interest in the field.

Greeted by a kaleidoscope of colours and memories of harvest 2018, the โ€œThe De Meye Estateโ€ is a remarkable family-owned boutique winery, situated in the lush Mulservlei area. [caption id="attachment_17016" align="aligncenter" width="768"] Entrance at De Meye Wines[/caption]   This unique little spot has been the home and farming ground to the Myburgh family for five generations. In the earlier years the family used to farm with cattle as the area was popular for cattle farms. The estate is named after the De Meye river in Holland, the birthplace of the first Myburgh, who came to farm in South Africa in 1665.
