Property Type: Farms
A 45% share of this beautiful established wine estate can be obtained.The selling price includes the right to build a house on the estate. Higher sections of the farm command unsurpassable views of Table Mountain and the Boland.
This property is situated 40 kilometres from Cape Town and only 20 kilometres from Stellenbosch and Cape Town International Airport. It is 120 hectares in extent with 60 hectares planted with wine grapes, 40 hectares of pristine Renosterveld and a further 20 hectares available for further planting. Current varieties include Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinotage, Malbec, Chardonnay and Cinsaut. One-third of the vineyards are older than 20 years. These older vineyards have lower yields but produce grapes of outstanding quality which are sought after by winemakers for premium quality wines.
The farm has been producing estate wines from grapes grown at the estate since 1974 and has consistently been producing wines of very high quality. Production has been as high as 600 tons of wine grapes in good years. A conservative projection going forward is that it will be able to produce at least 400 tons. The wine cellar has a 450-ton capacity.
The farm receives water for 3 ha from Theewaterskloof and has 16000 cubic meter dam.
