Bellingham Wines
Bellingham has a history that can be traced back to 1693 when the land was granted to one of the original French Huguenot families that settled in the Franschhoek Valley of the Cape winelands. Through the centuries, Bellingham has produced wines under the hand of many visionary and talented proprietors, but none so dynamic and respected as Bernard Podlashuk, who is regarded as the great patriarch and founder of the world class Bellingham wine brand of today. Bellingham’s Bernard Series of wines honours the memory of the man known fondly as Pod, who is responsible for many South African ‘firsts’ in wine, including the first dry white blend, the first Rose and the first Shiraz single variety released in the Cape. Our winemaking team is driven by his inspired passion, emotion and innovation in order to create fascinating modern wines of interest to the ever-changing consumer palate. Bellingham’s winemaking philosophy is one of minimal intervention. Time-honoured methods are combined with measured modern technological expertise, with a particular emphasis on mouth-feel and intensity of fruit. This makes our wines daringly unique and extraordinarily appealing.

A wine that stands out in a crowd accounting for the extraordinary track record of awards and deserved reputation as a quintessential South African Chenin Blanc.

Innovation Series

Pinopasso Pinotage

The production process of Pinopasso takes a two prong approach. We try and keep as close as possible to the Amaroni and Ripasso preparation of wine, obviously not having to prescribe to any Italian regulation in preparing the wines. We combine the best of both world to create a product that has the Pinotage fruit profile, some oxidative characters together with the darker colour, richness, texture and complexity of a matured red. The wine also benefits from the extra skin contact and freshness the higher acidn brings to the older wine.

Mocha Java Merlot

The rise of the ‘coffee cult’ style of wine first exploded on the South African wine scene with Pinotage. True to our innovative ethos, and after extensive experimentation with various varietal and wood options, Bellingham discovered that Merlot was a great fit and were the first to release this style. The grapes were harvested by hand in late March and arrived packed with fantastic cherry and red berry fruit ripeness. In keeping with the intended style of this wine, alcoholic and malolactic fermentation was completed in barrel allowing the richroasted develop by the coffee flavours to interactionof the young wine and wood.
