The Drift is located one-and-a-half hour’s drive east of Cape Town in the Overberg Highlands and accommodates up to twelve people, offering a quiet getaway balanced with plenty to do for active or adventurous visitors. There’s a nature reserve behind the farm, a large games room, yoga studio and pool, excellent hiking and mountain biking, and the Whale Route is just a stone’s throw away.
The farm is isolated and tranquil. While it offers a luxurious and breathtaking respite for the homestead guest, it is also a working farm growing delicious organic vegetables, world-class Extra Virgin Olive Oil and making finely crafted wines of exceptional quality. The farming and produce is shaped by organic philosophy, to leave the land in better shape than it was found, so special care is taken over what is planted and where it is planted. The organic produce is available to guests.
The Drift is dedicated to making the very best wine possible in South Africa. This is viticulture on the edge – these are extreme vineyards with the ability to make astounding wine. The goal is to make individual, superb quality wines with character; wines that represent the extreme growing conditions of this mountain farm.
THE WINES:Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, Barbera and Rosé; and a blended red.
