Our History

Marthinus Gerhardus Schoeman, born 9 October 1813, moved from Oudtshoorn where he transported grapes and copper distilling kettles to the Transvaal. The very same copper distilling kettles being used today to distil Schoemanati’s products. Marthinus’s son, Gideon Petrus, was born during The Great Trek on 13 September 1846. Marthinus and his family established themselves on the Nooitgedacht farm in Schoemansdrift. The first grapes in the old Transvaal were planted on Nooitgedacht and Marthinus was well known for his “wittetjies”.

Today Schoemanati has received more than 1022 medals at the National Mampoer Championships, and has been crowned eleven times the National Mampoer Champion. In 2018 and 2019, Schoemanati received 2 Gold and 1 Silver medal at the International Michael Angelo Competition.
