A Family affair, embracing the past, present and future with a love for farming and wine.
Once an 18th century outpost for the Dutch East India Company, Compagnes Drift farm in Bot River, is now home to Beaumont Wines, a family-run winery with a proud tradition of making individualistic wines from ancient clay-rich soils in the Walker Bay region. Founded by Raoul and Jayne Beaumont in 1974, the business is now run by son Sebastian Beaumont. With merely 34 hectares under vine, the vast majority of the 400-hectare farm is pristine fynbos-rich mountainside, part of the Groenlandberg Conservancy in the Kogelberg Biosphere. The farm is a treasure for both nature- and culture-lovers. The historic water mill is being restored to produce a limited amount of stone ground whole wheat flour while two beautifully restored historic cottages offer authentic farm accommodation.
