Usana wines can be found on Klein Welmoed farm outside of Stellenbosch. It is owned by brothers J. P and Pierre Winshaw. Usana is a Xhosa word meaning ‘a new beginning’ or ‘a baby’. Klein Welmoed farm is 300 ha and 70 ha of that was used to produce about 25000 bottles in a year.
Wine was one of the first ventures to take place on the farm. 2012 saw Jasper Raats and Hendrien de Munck start to make wine. After a few years this small wine estate began to expand to farm cattle, sheep, and chickens and also sell eggs and cultivates tomato tunnels.Their delightful old Cape Dutch shed was converted into a new tasting room and they are working towards a deli where their lamb, chicken, eggs and beef can be sold.
Taste their delicious Usana Sauvignon Blanc made up of 70% from Stellenbosch and 30 % Elgin grapes. It is a balanced wine with a floral perfume on the nose, gooseberry and passion fruit flavours.
This is the perfect wine for summer and goes well with seafood, chicken and can be enjoyed now or 2 years later. The Usana Pinot Gris is a refreshing wine with apple, pear, lime and gooseberry flavours. It has a smooth overtone and also pairs well with chicken and fish dishes in the summer.
