Where it all began
“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread – we came down to the Cape from Johannesburg in August 1943 after my husband Bernard had been boarded out of the Air Force, and that as far as I am concerned, was the beginning of a meaningful life.”
Excerpt from ‘Our Lives at Bellingham’ by Fredagh Podlashuk (1983)
The Bellingham Wine Philosophy
A firm hand & minimal intervention
At Bellingham we believe that grapes should be allowed to speak for themselves, which is why we follow a minimal intervention approach, respecting the fruit all the way through wine preparation. To this end we combine time-honoured methods with calculated technological expertise to arrive at premium wines that serve as a showcase for our vibrant terroir.
