The Jonker family has lived on Weltevrede since 1912. The estate was founded by Klaas Jonker, whose pioneering soul led him to plant the first vines in the area. In the 1930’s Weltevrede was inherited by his son, Japie Jonker, who in 1933 began wine farming on Weltevrede. Japie expanded the winery of Weltevrede to accommodate the growing grape production.
The third generation, Lourens Jonker, completed his degree in viniculture and undertook extensive study tours of the wine lands of Europe and California in 1962 before settling down to farm on Weltevrede. After the death of his father in 1969, Lourens took over the 65ha farm. He subsequently purchased neighbouring farms Muscadel (1969), River’s Edge (1981) and Sonop (1999). Today all the farms are consolidated as a 160 hectare estate.
