The Story of our Wines
"It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend, one's present or future thirst, the excellence of the wine or any other reason." Latin Proverb
In 2006, the Entwistles purchased the 45 Ha farm in the historic Bovlei valley, ten minutes from the town of Wellington, and under an hour’s drive from Cape Town.
The farm was initially proclaimed in 1699 and the Entwistles are only the sixth family since then to hold title. Sadly the farm had been in a steady decline for many years and the Entwistles arrived to a semi-derelict fruit farm with tremendous soil potential, deep cultural significance and outstanding panoramic views. The Entwistles christened the farm Val du Charron as a tribute to this rich background – Val du Charron or Valley of the Wagon maker was the original name of the Wellington valley. The French influence stems from the Huguenots who settled in the area in the early 1700’s while the reference to wagon making refers to the fact that Wellington was the last town where the Afrikaner’s ox wagons could be serviced before heading over the majestic Bainskloof into the then unknown hinterland.
Thus began a five-year rehabilitation of the historical buildings, planting of the vineyards and olive groves and finally the re-establishment of the wine making tradition on the farm. Stuart Entwistle, fortunately, had over 25 years of experience in property development that enabled them to do this. In 2012, Val du Charron itself became an Estate label i.e. all wines under the Val du Charron labels are bottled, produced and come from vines grown on the farm itself; thus giving a pure expression of the terroir to be found on Val du Charron’s southerly facing slopes.
