Welvanpas is situated near Wellington, next to the wellknown Bainskloof pass. The farm has an exceptional natural beauty due to the surrounding protea veld and the majestic Hawekwa and Groenberg mountain ranges.
Welvanpas is steeped in history due to the fact that it’s been in the Retief family for more than 305 years! Well known Voortrekker leader Piet Retief was born here and his father’s old grandfather clock can still be viewed in the main house.
Currently the farm belongs to Dan and Retha Retief. Dan or actually “Daniel Pieter Johannes Retief” is the 10th generation Retief staying and farming on Welvanpas.
He is as well the winemaker of the boutique Welvanpas wine range. Wine has been made and exported here since 1704.
At Welvanpas we welcome family and friends to visit and enjoy the beauty of the Bovlei with us! A coffee on the farm is a must for everyone that wants to get lost in time!
