Situated in the heart of Vouvray, the estate is the mastermind of young and dynamic Vincent Carême, and his wife Tania. Passionate about crafting various styles of Chenin Blanc, Vincent established 37 acres spread over three villages: Vouvray, Vernou-sur-Brenne and Noizay. He firmly believes that the quality of the wine is determined in the vineyard and consequently spends every possible moment tending to his vines with the greatest of care. Harvest is carried out exclusively by hand and performed by an experienced team of pickers. All of Domaine Vincent Carême’s wines are certified organic from 2010 onwards by Ecocert in France. His Le Clos and Le Peu Morier wines are now available in the U.S.

A meticulous Chenin Blanc grower, Vincent Carême's watchful eyes and careful hands have earned his Vouvrays exceptional praise.

Love and bubbly, a match made in heaven. Winemaker Philip Jonker must have foreseen the future when he harvested the Chardonnay grapes for his first vintage of Weltevrede's 'The Ring'. Appropriately named, as the maiden vintage matured over the course of three years, Philip fell in love and on his wedding day the cork was popped.

Grapes for ‘The Ring’ stem from old vines planted on slopes set in broken shale rock and limestone soil. Robertson is the only region in South Africa with limestone soils, which are ideal for producing exquisite Chardonnay. Weltevrede boasts  over 8,600 square feet of underground cellar, providing the ideal setting for barrel maturation and  Méthode Cap Classique aging.
 
The sparkling wine offers aromas of lemon grass, melon and mint with a crisp palate of green apple, citrus and honey. These complex flavors are flawlessly woven together to create an elegant Blanc de Blancs style that is delicate yet substantial.
