We have a spacious lawn and garden area just beyond the pool for outdoor activities.
The master bedroom is very spacious with glass patio doors all the way across the front of the room and a large en suite bathroom behind.
Driven by a desire to make individual, superb quality wines with exceptional character The Drift wines are assiduously crafted by winemaker Bruce Jack using only the grapes grown on our farm.
I love Pinot Noir. It transcends the obvious and the easy. Like life, however, it can sometimes seem unforgiving, unfair and unfathomable. But, when this grape shines, what lies beneath the layers of aroma and flavour can be so moving one instantly becomes a believer again.
Our farming and produce is shaped by our organic philosophy. We take special care over what we plant and where we plant it to imbue the essence of our natural and extreme environment. Our organic produce is available to our guests and through a number of select farm stalls, we also sell to trade.
We strategically place our hives according to the predominant kloof-funnelled winds, mountain streams and ancient Haseqwa settlements to ensure our honey is amazing.
Located one-and-a-half hour’s drive east of Cape Town, we can accommodate up to twelve people, offering a quiet getaway balanced with plenty of activities for active or adventurous visitors. There's a nature reserve behind us, a large games room and pool, excellent hiking and mountain biking by prior arrangement. The Whale Route is just a stone's throw away.
We have been farming all our vegetables biodynamically since 2001 and received full organic certification in 2012. This means we don’t use chemical fertilisers or pesticides on any of our vegetables. Our Villa vegetable garden is no exception. It's open to our guests and is always brimming with seasonal organic vegetables.
The Drift Farm and winemaker Bruce Jack are members of the exclusive Premium Wineries of South Africa co-operative. The same environmentally-aware farming philosophy holds for the vineyards as it does for the vegetables and the olives, although the wines are not strictly organic at this time.
The Drift Farm is a wonderful haven situated in the peaceful Overberg mountains. Accessible from Cape Town the farm is a perfect retreat or function venue with luxurious accommodation, tranquil surrounds and plenty of Overberg activities on your doorstep.
Expansive lawns, a spacious studio, uninterrupted vistas and absolute tranquility make The Drift an ideal yoga and meditation retreat just a couple of hours away from Cape Town.
Catering for 16 guests and in close proximity to the kitchen our conference room is a comfortable refuge to hold meetings and workshops.
