PREMIER WINE ESTATE AND CELLAR IN PRINCE ALBERT VALLEY
This is a rare opportunity to acquire this unique family owned wine estate in the heart of the exquisite Prince Albert Valley at the foothills of the majestic Swartberg Mountain Range, Western Cape, South Africa. Located 20 kms from the historical village of Prince Albert, 160 kms from George and 392 kms from Cape Town, the estate has 3 separate title deeds, each with its own elegant Victorian style homestead and spectacular sweeping mountain views.
There is a state of the art cellar which has the capacity to process 1500 tons of grapes and storage facilities for 1.4 million litres of wine. The wine tasting venue, which is a successful marriage of both modern and the vernacular Victorian architecture of the area, is home to the numerous award and medal winning wines. Additional features include a historic cellar as well as an authentic brandy distillery with antique handmade copper pot stills. In 2002, the Wine and Spirits Board awarded the estate its official "Wine of Origin Prince Albert Valley" status. The exceptional Karoo terroir and crystal clear spring mountain water has created a distinctive taste in their various cultivars which include Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rose, Sauvignon Blanc, sparkling wines and dessert wines. They have garnered international recognition such as the serving of their wines in the Business class of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as well as at the Royal wedding of Prince Albert of Monaco.
A river gently meanders through the farm's holistically grown olive groves, producing both Mission and Frontoio olives and olive oil. The strong water supply is fed and stored in a number of earth dams irrigating the environmentally friendly vineyards. This farm is a proud member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative and the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) system which complies with international environmentally sustainability criteria.
There is a private airfield with a landing strip of 900 metres and an aviator hangar. The fly-in function venue is a beautiful stone building offering a contemporary restaurant with fully equipped professional kitchen as well as a luxury self-catering guesthouse with breathtaking views.
The tranquility and character of this authentic treasure of the Karoo with its idyllic setting and stunning vistas has created an exceptional property that can be sold collectively or individually.
