THE STORY OF BABA YETU

Isabeau (founder of Our Daily Bottle and Baba Yetu) has lived in South Africa for a very long time. This is because her grandfather moved in his early 20s. He worked on the plantations in Sangania. In one of the famous uprisings, her grandfather was taken hostage. Isabeau her father always remained connected to Africa. And his goal was to go back there. Currently they own a small farm and this past year they bought a vineyard in Walton. (Harvesting 180 tons of grapes, however not yet their own winery). Making his dream come true! Your parents help determine the course of your life, especially with the loss of loved ones. The emotional contents of life are put into wine in the region.

In life you are scarred by the loss of family, but wine and the taste of it remains to toast someone you shared a bond with. 

Baba Yetu means “Our Father” in Swahili. A new wine, was born.

BABA YETU CHENIN BLANC

This chenin we made from very old vineyards. You get a concentrated flavor with lemon zest and honeyed notes on the nose. If you can wait a little longer, we recommend letting the wine rest for a few more months. It is a 2021 chenin blanc that will really reach its potential after a year in bottle.

A firm yet supple red wine full of dark berries, cherries and a touch of mocha from the oak.

Wellington Terroir

The Wellington wine region in South Africa is home to 80% of the vine nurseries that supply the South African wine industry with grafted, phylloxera-resistant rootstock. Our very own tagline, ‘Wellington Wines – where wines are born’ celebrates the very soil that grow and nurture the industry’s and our own vines.

Our history dates back to 1906, 1907 and 1941 when Wellington Co-operative Winery, Bovlei Co-operative and Wamakersvalley Wines were founded respectively. The accomplishments of each winery, together with a passion for wine and shared interest in enriching the Wellington Wine industry, led to the three wine giants combing forces, merging in recent years to form Wellington Wines.

Combining the knowledge and passion over the years, Wellington Wines truly became a wine producer of outstanding characteristics, implementing innovative methods to ensure our region is experienced with every sip.

Today we continue to build on the legacy and vision of our founders in creating wines of excellence.

Our 56 member farmers across Wellington and neighbouring areas of the Swartland, Riebeek, Hermon and Paarl areas, work closely with our winemakers and viticulturists to ensure only the best grapes are grown and hand-selected for their outstanding quality.

Our ranges all carry the trademark of true quality, inspired by the people, the terroir and the rich history of our valley. We are a proud supplier of leading retailer’s private labels and buyers own brands for more than 10 years and pride ourselves in the consistent quality we produce at the cellar.
