About US


Mel Wines is a quintessential passion story. One born out of a longstanding love of wine and the pursuit of excellence. For many years, founders Rene and Saskia Mellema travelled the world searching for the perfect parcel of land to bring their shared vision to life. In 2014, they discovered Klein Champagne – one of the oldest farms in Franschhoek and the optimal starting point to plant vines, keep horses and call home.
