The farm has been the jewel of the Bovlei valley for three centuries and has had many owners. The current farm dates from 1993 with the decision to grow high quality wine grapes. The first vines were planted in 1995. Since the present owners acquired it in 2003, they have built a winery, tasting room and storage complex. In 2005, the farm was given Estate status.

We had to go and stock our red wines we discovered this Estate a few months ago and fell in love with their red wines. We went back to purchase a few more. What a great find.

It is worth getting off the beaten track and visiting this farm. Their wines are excellent, after three years of drinking them at different occasions.

Right at the end of the Bo-vlei road and right beneath Bainskloof pass with stunning scenery. I enjoyed their wines and had a nice cold meat and cheese platter for lunch. Friendly service and a must do estate if you're after good wines

Hidden? Yes, at the top of a verdant valley, reached down a dusty road past ancient farmhouses. Finally green paddocks, with horses clearly in fine fettle, to park under a shade of packed sticks. A short walk uphill, into a courtyard filled with tables and...More

The wine estate is a hidden treasure with great wines, enjoy the wine tasting and do the walk. There is no big show - it is about the wine. The wines are great and price is more than reasonable.
