The Van Almenkerk family is of Belgian/Dutch extraction and immigrated to South Africa over a decade ago. It acquired an apple farm and converted 15ha to vineyards, also adding a state-of-the-art cellar that was carved into the mountain slope. The lawns overlooking the valley are a popular picnic spot, as is the Belgian-inspired De Brasserie restaurant the family set up in Beach Road, Strand. The estate is run by Natalie and Joris van Almenkerk under the eye of patriarch Joep van Almenkerk.
