Project Description

STONEHURST

In the early 1940’s a young woman came to a small town in the Western Cape.  Here she met and married a local wine farmer and horse breeder, gave up teaching, started a family and immersed herself in her husband’s wine business and shared his passion for horses.

After identifying the vineyards and, by extension, from which soils the best wines came, she persuaded her husband to plant 3 hectares of vineyards, from this rocky limestone outcrop Stonehurst was born.
