Graham Beck

Graham Beck

The sad passing of the founder, Graham Beck (age 80) on 27 July 2010 heralded the end of an extraordinary era for one of South Africa’s best loved wine families. In his role as patriarch and mentor Graham Beck’s unswerving work ethic, compassionate nature and infectious zest for life uplifted and inspired all those who knew him. The foundations for our success were laid in 1983 when Graham Beck purchased Madeba, a farm located outside the Western Cape town of Robertson. It was his ambition to establish a world-class winery in this area that saw the erection of a state-of-the-art cellar and groundbreaking tasting facility. The success of the Robertson estate prompted the acquisition of a second property in the breathtaking Franschoek Valley where our talented team created wines of world class distinction and broad appeal. This property has subsequently changed proprietorship and Graham Beck Wines has embarked on an exciting new chapter of wine evolution. Born in Cape Town, Graham demonstrated his entrepreneurial skills whilst studying commerce at the University of Cape Town. During this time he established a successful home renovation business called Kangra – still the name of our holding company today. Graham then ventured into the coal mining business, where he achieved numerous successes. Graham’s love of horses and racing led to a number of successful stud operations throughout the world. The Beck family continues to generously invest their time, energy and funds in the future success and growth of South Africa. Through their example social development and community upliftment remain core values of the brand. In 2009 Graham and Rhona opened the Graham and Rhona Beck Skills Centre near Madeba in Robertson. Part of an extensive and innovative social development program, the centre aims to facilitate skills development for the long term upliftment of the farming community in the Breede River Valley. The Beck family’s sincere love of art is another enduring theme with numerous striking pieces providing endless joy to those who visit our estates. A reverence for our precious indigenous fauna and flora saw the establishment of the Graham Beck Wines Private Nature Reserve on the family’s Robertson farm.
