Some of the possibilities the farm offers include:

1. The farm allows for lucratively extending as a tourist and events venue:
– The farm location is unique – it is nestled in the Hottentots-Holland Mountain range, with views of the valley, wine farms and False Bay Ocean – however has a suburb of Stellenbosch neighbouring it. It could not be in a more ideal location as an easy to access tourist attraction.
– The access road onto the farm is paved and easily navigated by both compact vehicles and tour buses alike.
– The farm represents an accurate reflection of SA wine making heritage, dating to 1914 when the farm’s winery and cellar were built.
– The restaurant specializes in traditional SA fare called a “Boerebraai” – (a SA barbeque) where food is cooked on an open fire burning old vines. Dishes include “boerewors” (boer is a farmer and wors is sausage); “pampoenkoekies” (pumpkin fritters); “roosterkoek” (bread baked in cast iron pots); “braaibroodjie” (barbecued sandwiches filled with cheese, tomato and onions). A classic dessert of malva pudding and campfire coffee end the meal.
– The restaurant and wine tasting area seats 50 guests inside with an additional 60 guests outside. Erecting Bedouin tents on the lush lawns extends seating to accommodate 120 people.
– Create a personalized bottle of your own wine to take home. Guests can blend and cork their own wine.
– The farm has a wedding venue with its own kitchen facility and a fully equipped conference room.
– Three air bnb cottages provide for overnight stays. As guests are averse to driving after an event, providing more overnight accommodation is another source of expansion.
– The laidback and peaceful atmosphere provides the perfect authentic South African farm experience while watching cattle graze, listening to working farm noises and sipping award winning wine.
– An estimated 800 000 local and international tourists visit the Stellenbosch region each year. As the infrastructure is in place on the farm, with only increased marketing, income will be boosted.
– The farm can leverage from Stellenbosch being the primary location for viticulture and its research in SA, and for being in the heart of the pioneering area of wine tourism.

2. Existing Winery & Cellar can be put to full production
– The now fully equipped 1300 m²cellar was built in 1941, with extensions made in 1998.
– The total red wine production capacity is between 150 and 350 tons annually. The cellar can host up to 300 oak barrels (225-litres each).
– Over many years of wine making, grapes sourced from neighbouring farms continues to be the preferred method of production.
– The farms’ water is sourced from the Theewaterskloof water scheme for irrigation of 7.4ha (74 000 m²) land, equivalent to an allowance of 103 675 m³ per year. The water for further use comes from a dam on the farm, holding an estimated 45 000 m³ of water and a further 3 boreholes with a filtration plant.

3. Crop cultivation
– With fertile soil, sufficient water and resident farm labour, an opportunity for cash crop cultivation is an additional opportunity.
– Now as all the grapes are outsourced, planting vines represents another opportunity for expansion on the 38 hectare’s (ha); (94 acres) of farmland best suited to support vines.
– The farm has a temperate, Mediterranean climate with an approximate annual rainfall of between 600mm – 800 millimeters (mm) (24 -32 inches) per annum.

4. Animal Husbandry
– There are 36 head of Red Angus cattle and one bull on the land. This is currently operated as a hobby and presents yet another expansion opportunity.
