|Established in 1941, Robertson Winery celebrated their 70th Birthday in 2011. The winery had its humble beginnings in a charming missionary church on the outskirts of Robertson, and itís history is closely linked to that of the town. Robertson, established 1852, were named it in recognition and appreciation of the many services of Dr William Robertson, a Scottish minister who arrived in South Africa in 1822. During the late 19th century the worker community that occupied the land where the Robertson Winery now stands built a stone church and their congregation was serviced by missionaries. When Robertson Winery was established in 1941, the small church was no longer in use and the winery acquired the building for its winemaking and cellaring operations.
