This estate gets its name from the old German for ‘the will of the weather’. The winemaker of Wedderwill, Nico Vermeulen, states, “We do the utmost to let nature to the talking. Unpretentious quality is the result”.

Located on the slopes of the Schapenberg, the soil is known as the Malmesbury Group and retains water very well. The ‘Cape Doctor’ wind inhibits disease in the vine, whilst the cooling Benguela current brings a breeze to calm the heat of the sun. For this winemaker, the seasons dictate when to plant, water, prune and harvest. They believe that the weather gives wine its personality. Wind, soil, rain, worms, sunshine, fungi, air and plants all work together to create wonderful wines.

They work together with these natural processes and don’t use any toxins or unsustainable practices. Nick comes with over 30 years of experience in winemaking and boasts many awards. He first consulted with Wedderwill and their first vintages in 2004 werea Bordeaux blend and a Shiraz.
