The history – a wine range inspired by one lady’s love of gardening! (perhaps a separate box)
The famed tangled tree of Van Loveren, which served as inspiration for this wine range, started a tradition of planting trees to mark significant family, political and historical events. In 1941 Jean Retief ordered a Rhus Lancea tree from KwaZulu-Natal. Her husband Hennie was convinced that it was no different from the Karee that grew along their river and planted a shoot next to her tree. Their two identical trees have since intertwined into one magnificent tree which has come to symbolize their love for each other. Visit Van Loveren and discover all the other ‘tree stories’
