Our farm is situated on the outskirts of the town of Napier and is a mere 50 km from Cape Agulhas, the Southernmost Tip Of Africa. Arniston with its lovely swimming beaches is 35 minutes away.
Our small farm was developed by one of South Africas most famous winemakers, on which he produced his world famous signature wines. We also farm olives, vegetables and fruit and run a small guest house, which is situated in the previous wine cellar. On our farm we have a small flock of free range chickens and three dogs. Everything we produce is organic.
We are a Swiss-South African Family with two kids.
