This is really very good high potential farm.
The grapes go to Aan de Doorns Wine Cellar. This is an Co-operative Cellar which means it belongs to the farmers. The Cellar took 32 000 tones of grapes in 2014. The farm produce 10% of this grapes so we have 10% of the shares. On the Balance sheet the Cellar without the wine is valued at R72 000 000.
So if the cellar is sold, and there is no debt, the farm should get 10%.
123 ha planted.
The farm harvested 3260 tones of grapes 2014.
12ha is scheduled for 2017
If these vineyards get into full production, the farm will be harvesting 4500 – 5000 tones.
2014 Average of 33 tones/ ha.
THE FARM WAS AWARDED WINE FARM OF THE YEAR 2016 AT AAN DE DOORNS WINE CELLAR
98% of the wine gets exported to mostly the UK. In Tesco’s etc you will find the First Cape brand which we are partners in.
The farm are next to the cellar, so we take the grapes are transported by tractor. The farm normally harvest about 100 tones a day(about 4 hours) , but on days that the cellar is quieter the farm do 200-250 tones. (10 hours)

REASON FOR SELLING (AS PER OWNER)
I took this farm over from my father in 2004 and we harvested 850 tones and had allot of debt and everything was old. Now I have turned it around we have no debt, everything is new, and we will be at 5000 tones in 2 years time! I have done what no-one around me could. I cant sell the farm to my neighbor because we are 2/3/4 times bigger than them and I should buy their farms! Also I think with the Rand that’s so weak against the Pound/Euro/Dollar this is very very attractive. I have prove myself and want to go on to the next step and that is to follow my dream and that is to list my own hedge fund on the JSE stock exchange. (I am an Future trader as well and that’s my true love).
