77 of 800 – Val du Charron
Wine farm 77 of 800 is Val du Charron in Wellington!  

The farm was initially proclaimed in 1699 and bought by the current owner (Catherine – the sixth family to do so) in 2006. The farm was in ruin, over run by fruit trees so Catherine took on a 10 year project to restore the old building and plant vines and olive trees. True to the heritage, Val du Charron means “Valley of the Wagon maker” – Wellington was the last town where the Afrikaner’s ox wagons (back in 1700) could be serviced before heading over the majestic Bainskloof mountains into the then unknown hinterland.
