Almenkerk Wine Estate is a true family Estate. Owned by the Belgian/Dutch van Almenkerk family and run by Natalie and Joris van Almenkerk. While Joris has fun making the wine (award winning wines!), Natalie is in charge of sales and marketing, PR and admin. Patriarch Joep helps out with sales, frequent wine tastings and as a mentor to the business side. Next to that, we have a dedicated group of family and friends that come out to help us during crunch time, open up the tasting room when we are not around, and - most importantly - they help us sharing a regular bottle (or 2) of our delicious wines.
Do browse around and read up on Almenkerk Wine Estate. From the recognition our wines are receiving to the new projects we are developing on the farm. Read our viticulturist Neil's harvest report or how we got to where we are today. Most importantly, though, do come to the beautiful cool-climate Elgin Valley and visit us - we'll share our story and wines and look forward to meeting you!
