The Holsloot River flows through the picturesque Stettynskloof valley and it is cupped by mountains which provide a breathtaking backdrop to one of the most highly regarded dry fly venues in the country. Its clarity and free rising rainbow trout create memories that endure long after you have left for home. The dam at the head of the valley, that supplies the nearby town of Worcester with its water, creates a tailwater fishery, ensuring a constant supply of cool water in the Cape’s hot, dry summers when other rivers in the area become too warm for trout fishing. Dwarsberg, situated in the heart of the region’s wine country, offers tranquility in spectacular suroundings. The Holsloot River rewards delicacy in approach, tackle and tactics – the most poetic form of fly fishing.

The variety on the blackboard is a showcase of Ashley’s selection of meats that are smoked weekly on site and paired with sides to perfection. Our floor manager is Authur Kadema, originally from Zimbabwe, also known at Pigalle restaurant as King Arthur. He impressed both Deon & Mariëtte so much when he served them there back in 2016 that they approached him to join the team and look after the service and training of the staff – today he is part of the “family” and lives on the farm. All liquor products served in the restaurant is made in the “Ou Stokery” building and no products, wine, beer etc. is allowed to be brought in.

– Nestled in the Breedekloof valley at the foot of the Du Toitskloof Mountains, lies the family owned Stofberg Wine Estate. Since the late 1800’s wine making became one of the many traditions of the farm Klipdrift where the current winemaker, Du Toit Stofberg followed in his father’s footsteps as winemaker. In 1949 his father, PJD Stofberg(Piet Tof) joined his uncle, Jacobus Du Toit and aunt, Marina Du Toit(Stofberg) on the farm. Soon Pieter, 3rd Stofberg winemaker of the estate and first namesake of his grandfather will join the family, setting forth the tradition by being the 5th generation winemaker of the estate. The Stofberg private family cellar was the first cellar in the Goudini area to implement cold fermentation. The Stofberg history goes back to 1764 when Jacobus Stofberg arrived at the Cape on board ‘Het Hoop’. Stofberg Estate is a tribute to the noble roots of the Stofberg family, especially to our late father and grandfather Piet Stofberg – an estate where tradition meets vision.

In a secluded Breede Valley sanctum, a lone monk hunches over his bench, cackling quietly to himself. Devotion to the lost art of alchemy can drive a man mad, but Brother Nicholas remains stoic in his pursuit of a fresh miracle. Oh, the things he’s seen, concocting and conjuring and staring into the void, all in the name of unearthing the supernatural, the curious and the sublime… MONKS gins are handcrafted and double-distilled in small batches using a hybrid artisanal still called ‘Jennifer’, named after Nic’s mother and of Nic’s own design. Expect intensely flavour-forward botanicals, nine of them hand-picked and many endemic to the area. Combine with crystal-clear mountain waters and the result is a heavenly one. Featuring ripples of citrus, berries and Cape buchu, our gins are designed for immaculate consumption.

While building a new irrigation dam for his farm, high up on the slopes of his mountain, the farm owner saw the possibility of creating a weekend getaway campsite. The campsite spot has unprecedented views all the way to Worcester, he felt that this spot was the perfect spot to set up a campsite. Soon after completion, the indigenous fauna and flora were reintroduced to the area and a vast stretch on the embankment was carpeted in a lawn to create a sense of space. The owner of the land, refurbished an unused shipping container turning the space into 2 showers and 2 lavatories. There is also a very comfortable kitchen/scullery. There is a space set up adjacent to the container and covered by a large roof with enough room to pitch a tent undercover too—perfect protection against the elements. It is a lovely campsite located on a working farm, but perfectly situated on the upper levels of the mountain side at the edge of a dam, to take in the views of the valley. The campsite is private and exclusively booked per party of guests.

AB first tasted Durif wine in 2012 and fell in love with the grape. With the encouragement of the Badsberg cellar master he planted a 100 vines in 2013 and was further encouraged to make his own wine from the grapes as an extension of the experiment.
