De Compagnie Wine Estate has 27 hectares situated in a narrow valley inbetween the Hawekwa and Groenberg Mountains and only 5 kilometres outside the town of Wellington.
These farm date back for three centuries and farming has a long history on the land. The piece of land is steeped in history and way back in 1705 the VOC decreed that Van Rostock, then owner of the farm, was required to plant wheat and oak trees and also breed cattle.
Johann Loubser and Riana Scheepers became owners of the farm in 2002 and renamed it De Compagnie. They worked hard to restore the homestead and upgrade and extend the existing vineyards.
The estate blends 3 wines - a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Privaatkeur (blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc) as wel as a Potstill Brandy.
