Wine farm for sale around Paarl in the Cape Winelands district of the Western Cape

This 56 ha lies on the foot of the Paardeberg ('horse mountain'), this area divides the Paarl and Swartland wine regions.
It is a hilly, off-the-beaten-track region; together with the soil composition and prevailing winds creates a specific quality in the grapes.
This area is beautiful, tranquil and very sought-after.
This farm has a certain charm with authentic buildings and creates a warm atmosphere which is very welcoming.
So let me not beat around the bush-(excuse the pun)....farming looks mighty easy when your implements are a pencil and you are far away from mountains and vineyards.
But this farmland can be a new stage of opportunity and strength in your life. So come, and put on your gumboots, start your tractor, drive through your vineyards with admiration...
Here your passion for the land can lead to huge expansion. Your strength will not come from what you can do, it will come from overcoming the things you once thought you could not do.
You can. You will. End of story.
