Further Details

In the 1960's, Gabriël Hendrik du Toit, a civil engineer, followed his dream of becoming a wine farmer by buying two neighbouring farms, totalling 70 ha, in the beautiful Breede River Valley, between Robertson and Bonnievale. He added a third property to start a dairy farm and called it Soek Die Geluk, since he firmly believed that he would find happiness in this enterprise. Today Soek Die Geluk is a well-known export label to the Netherlands.

Between 1989 and 2015, Jan and Gawie du Toit, the current owners, added five more farms to the original properties and at present the farms cover a total of 380 ha. Of this, 280 ha is under irrigation and 180 ha under vineyards.

Gawie, the third generation, joined Goedverwacht in 2013 after receiving his degree at University of Stellenbosch.

Jan du Toit was born in April 1961 and grew up at Goedverwacht. He matriculated at Bonnievale High School in 1979 after which he completed two years of National service. During 1982 – 83 he studied Cellar Technology at Elsenburg Agricultural College, and in 1984 had his maiden vintage at Goedverwacht. His father, Gabriël Hendrik passed away in 1987, with the result that Jan's has remained at the helm of Goedverwacht ever since.

In 1988 Jan married Marian and they have three children, Gawie, Marisa and Robert. Jan and Gawie are the sole owners of Goedverwacht Wine Estate consisting of 180 ha vineyards.
