The Farm was established in 1825. The Marais Family was the original owners and has been ever since. The Marais originated from just outside Paris in a marshy region called Marais and is a suburb of the city today.
The original owners started as live stock farmers, they began planting cash crop later and fruit trees, apples (which they made Cider from the one house on the farm, which is still called the apple house).
Following at the end of the 19th century vines was planted but it was only at the end of the Great War that vineyards was planted as sole income commodity because of a shortage of wine in Europe.
All the farms had their own cellars but at the end of the 2nd world war Co-ops started. Owner, Kosie Marais’s, grandfather donated the grounds for the current Co-op but still kept his own cellar Breëland as he was a good wine maker and businessman.
Kosie Marais bought the farm from his aunt from his mother’s side in 2005 so it has not left the bloodline.
Our wine making team selects only the best grapes to create our superb wines. With a limited amount of wine bottled, you are sure fortunate to have a bottle Breëland in your presence.
We offer incredible self-catering accommodation, mountain bike trials, safari drives as well as breathtaking hiking trials on the farm.
