Thunderchild, Robertson

One of the most unique examples of community collaboration that we have come across so far was found in the heart of the Robertson Wine Valley.

Thunderchild is made in aid of the children living in the Robertson Herberg Children’s Home. 100% of profit is donated to the children.

in aid of the children living in the Robertson

In 2003 various local businesses and individuals came together to establish a 5ha vineyard that could provide long-term financial support to Die Herberg orphanage and children’s home. This prime plot is situated right next to Die Herberg and 100% of the grapes harvested produce a Cabernet Franc-Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend under the label ‘Thunderchild’.

Over 120 children aged 0 to 18 are currently housed and cared for here. The proceeds from Thunderchild sales supplement existing funding by providing for the specialised education of each child that would otherwise not be possible.

Some activities sponsored by the Thunderchild initiative include driving lessons, attending sports tournaments, musical training, and further education after matric.
