This wine farm is situated between Paarl and Stellenbosch on the Franschhoek Road.
The first thought you will have when seeing this farm is the spectacular views of the exquisite Simonsberg Mountains which results in creating a truly impeccable ambiance.
This portion of the farm which is being sold used to be part of a much bigger farm that dates back to 1699 which had been obtained by the French Huguenot, Francois Retief.
With the current friendly staff, boutique weddings can be arranged for that special day which is what you can take over and take advantage of. The facility caters for exclusivity rather than mass production so this creates the one source of income for the farm.
There is a fully equipped kitchen to cater for these events.
CONFERENCES AND FUNCTIONS
With the beautiful setting, the farm is ideal for any special event or private function like a birthday, baby shower, bachelorette party, year-end function, product launch, corporate function, seminar or conference.
Located just 15 minutes from Paarl, 26 minutes from Franschhoek and 40 minutes from Cape Town, the venue is perfectly central.
This would be the second source of income.
The wine range derives it name from the Victor Verster Prison situated close by where Nelson Mandela took his first steps to Freedom in 1992. One of the wine ranges was created to allow others to experience memorable moments on the scenic estate.
The grapes are harvested and sent away to a winery to be turned into their unique red wine range.
The wines made are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage which come from the grapes planted on in the sandy soil.
All the wines are matured for 12 to 24 months in oak barrels to reach peak perfection.
This is the third source of income on the farm.
The farm has 3 cottages with one of the cottages used for rental income, one being for the manager and a third for the owner but the farm requires a nice manor house to be built.
The farm has a great water supply right. There is a pipeline from the Wemmershoek Dam supplying 88,000 cubic meters of clean irrigable water under 5 bar pressure to the farm which is enables irrigation to occur without the need for pumps.
The farm is well located and offers the new owner several opportunities to earn a return of the land excluding and optional additional income of accommodation for guests.
