The farm is a VAT vendor and is being sold as a going concern with all the businesses and their assets including all equipment, stock and vehicles. Allowing the new owner to step right into a profit-making business and serene lifestyle.
The beautiful 22.4ha farm is nestled in the upper Franschhoek Valley, about an hour from Cape Town. The valley has a perfect micro-climate with lowered temperatures and fantastic terroir (soil conditions) allowing for high yields and quality wines.
The farm currently has approximately 14 hectares under vine with 10 varietals. The production is currently between 5-7 tonnes/ha and has a capacity of between 8-10 tonnes/ha. Crucially, given the current water regulations of the area, the farm is self-sufficient in terms of its water supply with a large dam, access to spring as well as existing additional boreholes, therefore there is no reliance on municipal water.
Currently nominated for six Platter 5 Star awards in 2017 and with countless awards in the past, this is a highly decorated and sought-after brand. A strong direct export element of the business, with a hub in Belgium, allows for 75% of its sales to be international, creating a strong hedge against the rand.
The farm is one of the elite few that operates at a profit.
Farm features include:
- a winery;
- labeling line;
- packaging facility and a number of cellars (the largest with a 150 ton capacity).
- The charming tasting room is also adaptable for event hosting.
The farm has four main accommodation structures: The manor house, winemaker’s house, historic two bedroom cottage and self-catering cottages. The manor house (±400 m²), four bedrooms and three bathrooms with a lovely entertainment area on its spacious veranda with a rim-flow pool, braai areas and a pizza oven.
It overlooks a large shaded lawn, creating a tranquil getaway and has panoramic views over the mountains and vineyards. The immaculate winemaker’s house (±300 m²) has a beautiful view over the vineyards. The four bedroom, three bathroom, newly built house is complete with a sizeable entertainment area and veranda.
The historic two bedroom cottage is currently used for extended family but the possibilities are endless. Five exquisite self-catering guest cottages complete with a splash pool offer a relaxing setting between the farm’s vines and stunning mountain range. The one and two bedroom cottages allow for additional income generation and are owned by a company included in the sale of the farm.
