South Africa Spotlight: Napier Winery

Napier Winery is located in South Africa near a town called Wellington on the Western Cape and was founded in 1989 by Michael Loubser who transformed the once fruit farm into the world renown winery it is today.

The town of Wellington is named so after the Duke of Wellington (who fought and defeated Napoleon) and was christened such by Sir George Napier (hence the winery name) who was the Governor of the Cape of Good Hope from 1837 to 1843 and was subsequently deported to India by the British government after abolishing slavery in South Africa.
