Solms Delta - Heritage Range

Amalie and Hiervandaan are the two premium labels for Solms Delta. We rebuilt the crest and made some changes so the labels are more up market. Thick cotton paper with debossing made it more tactile. Backlabel stories: Princess Amalie von Solms-Braunfels was immortalised by Rembrandt in 1632. After her marriage to the Prince of Orange, she played a significant role in Dutch political life. Her grandson, William III, King of England, provided refuge and financial support to thousands of French Huguenots after the revocation of the edict of Nantes in 1685. Among these, some 180 souls were relocated to the Cape and granted farms in the immediate vicinity of Delta where they laid the foundations of the modern South African wine industry. ‘Hiervandaan’ (meaning ‘from this place’) is a word with special significance in the colonial history of the Cape. It was used by early European settlers to define their new identity: ‘Ons is hiervandaan, ons is Afrikaners.’ (‘We are from this place, we are Africans.’)
