Ken and his wife Teresa set their hearts on a historic vineyard in Stellenbosch. They bought a beautiful farm and homestead in a public auction in 1993. a massive renovation was undertaken in the vineyards and home. The vision to improve the lot of employees by growing the business and thereby providing maximum job opportunities in a market that is desperate for support. They farm sustainably with no herbicides or pesticides, till by hand, hugely labour intensive, but very satisfying, prune, thin bunches and leaves all by hand and finally harvest by hand. This additional employment  goes some way to improving the quality of life in their community
