Badenhorst Family Wines
Badenhorst Family Wines are made on Kalmoesfontein Farm in the Paardeberg area, it falls in Swartland appellation, between Wellington and Malmesbury. The 28ha of vineyards consists of old bush vines planted in the Siebritskloof part of the mountain.
The property is owned by the dynamic and goodlooking cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst, both of them originally from Constantia.
Their grandfather was the farm manager of Groot Constantia for 46 years. Their fathers were born there and farmed together in Constantia in the days when people still ate fresh vegetables and Hanepoot grapes and when there were a lot less traffic lights.
The two of them have restored a neglected cellar on the farm that was last used in the 1930’s to make natural wines in the traditional manner.
