South African Wines of Beau Joubert

BEAU JOUBERT's rich viticultural history spans back to 1695 when the governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, allocated the property, Veelverjaagt to Coenraed Visser. One hundred years later, the farm was sold to a French Huguenot descendant, named Dirk Daniel Joubert. He in turn, divided the farm between his two sons; the one retained the Veelverjaagt name while the other named his portion La Provence, to honour the birthplace of his forefathers... from the Beau Joubert website.

I encourage you to check out the website of Beau Joubert vineyards of South Africa. It is quite beautiful! And their wines are wonderful! Meet Andrew Hilliard, Managing Director/Owner, this Thursday evening for a wine tasting event. We hope you can join us!
