Van Loveren has been in the Retief family since 1937 when Hennie Retief snr acquired the land in Robertson Valley and named it after Christina van Loveren, an ancestor of his young bride, Jean van Zyl. In those years sweet wines and wine for brandy were made. In the 1970’s when Nico and Wynand had joined Hennie, the winery was modernised and the first dry wines were made - Colombar and Steen (Chenin blanc), soon followed by noble varieties Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay in the early 1980’s.
