FOR THE LOVE OF WINE

In 1956, Daniël Francois Malan, grandfather to current winemaker, Danie Malan was the first of the Malan generations to initiate the esteemed Allesverloren trophy haul. He did this by winning the General Smuts Trophy in the SA Championship Young Wine Show for Allesverloren Port for two consecutive years (1956 and 1957). Our wines continue to win international acclaim, but at Allesverloren, we do what we do for the love of wine not the accolades. Get an introduction to our portfolio by clicking on the tabs below.
