Beaumont farm and winery is steeped in history: it’s home to the region’s oldest wine cellar, which dates to the 1700s, and boasts a fascinating watermill – one of the oldest in the Overberg. The Mill houses three different mill machines, one of these a Vitruvian driven by a beautiful wooden water wheel powered by a natural stream.
The Beaumont family crest “Erectus non Elatus” – which means proud but not arrogant – is an approach carried through everything they do, from the hand crafted, classically-styled wines and wine tastings to the indoor and outdoor venue spaces and charming holiday cottages. The Beaumont family also hosts a number of events, including the popular Barrel Lunch.
The next lunch takes place on Sunday 1 July, starting at 12pm with a glass of Beaumont Chenin Blanc and their delicious homegrown almonds and olives. Sebastian will walk visitors through the vineyards to demonstrate how vines are pruned, before moving into the barrel cellar for lunch.
