The Blomendahl Family’s agricultural tradition in Europe dates back to 1185. This is when the first certified mention of the Blomendahl Family farm was made. To this day, the farm is still run by the Blomendahl Family. Over the centuries the Blomendahl name has taken many forms including Blommentall, Blumenthal and Blomendale, but made its way back to the original Blomendahl. Descendants have, over the years, spread to multiple different continents. FJ Blomendahl and family, made their way to the beautiful South Africa from Germany in 2003. To this day, Blomendahl family are still producing wines and spirits in Germany and South Africa.
