Their flagship wine has won a 5 star Platter's award in 2015 with a further 3 nominations in 2016 and 6 nominations in 2017, to mention only a few of several achievements.
The unique lowered temperature, micro-climate and terroir of this southernmost corner of Franschhoek allows for exceptional quality and high yields. Although planted to capacity with only 14ha of vines, the current average production is around 5 tons per ha, which leaves room for the future owner to increase production.

These storage areas can be renovated and converted into a restaurant or function venue to expand the business.
