Situated in the Breede River valley between Worcester and Villiersdorp, the farm gets a Karoo influence on the cool breezes at night from Hermanus. Two distinct terroir, south east and north west, presents the opportunity for completely different styles on one property. The cooler slopes are perfect for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, while the rocky soil on the other side is ideal for other reds and Tannat in particular.
We are blessed with our soil. The Hoeks River runs through the farm from south to north. There is a cooler east side and warmer west side and also a plain for the Syrah. The soil is greatly varied, ranging from sand to stone to clay.
Christiaan describes Worcester as the ideal region to produce quality reds. ‘There are exceptional vineyards on the ideal terroir in this valley, and with special effort and patience, the Worcester wine region can become the leading wine-producing area in the country.’
