Many of our newsletter readers and visitors to the Cellar will have seen the incredible photographs on permanent display in the tasting room. These are by Daniel Naude, our owner’s son and a world-renowned photographer.

We recently welcomed a small herd of the exotic Ankole cattle, who feature so prominently in Daniel’s book “Sacred Sightings” to the farm and look forward to showing them off to visitors. They can be viewed from 09h00- 16h00 whenever the tasting room is open. We look forward to further works from him highlighting these iconic animals, but with a South African slant this time.
