Situated 18 km outside Prince Albert, in the beautiful and well-known valley, you will find this 1027 hectare farm. Currently 7,2 hectares of land are planted with vineyards (Pinotage, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay), and are under irrigation.
The vines currently on the property have been planted in 1995, and since 2009, organic farming has been practiced. Practicing organic practices is largely made possible because of the arid Great Karoo climate with its low humidity, and the low disease pressure from being so far removed from the main wine producing areas.
Yields realise very low at an average of 4 tonnes per hectare, to be in balance with the dry environment and the organic growing nature. The current owners operate a family run organic wine enterprise an agricultural endeavour this family has been involved in for 6 generations on the farm. The winemaker currently employed bottles his own brand of wine on the farm, which also has a tasting room attracting visitors from near and far.
The water on the property are as pure as you get – straight from the Swartberg Mountains and in abundance, making this farm a complete oasis in the otherwise arid Great Karoo.
These water sources include 1 borehole fitted with a submersible pump; it supplies around 10 000 litres per hour. There are also 2 earth dams on the property, storing the 72 hour per week alternating water.
The farm boasts a 16 km trail host to an official annual trail run event, increasing the income generated on this immaculate property.
Another source of income is the rental of the wine cellar facilities to the neighbouring farm. Infrastructure includes a 5 bedroom main house, which is around 120 years old, a second 3 bedroom homestead currently used as a guest house, 5 cottages and numerous outbuildings.
