Breedekloof Wine Valley Newsletter June 16

I can’t believe it’s June. Winter is still finding its way into the Breedekloof Wine Valley, but the temperatures have dropped considerably and the nights and mornings are cool and crisp with mist hanging over the valley.
There is so much to love about winter, though – roaring fire places, a glass of your favourite Breedekloof red or hanepoot, planning your Soetes & Soup weekend…The Breedekloof Wine Valley is particularly beautiful this time of year and if you have an urge to get away, take advantage of the winter specials offered by our accommodation facilities, or join us for Soetes & Soup.

Breedekloof Greening Project 2016


As part of the alien clearing that is done in the Breedekloof Wine Valley, we have partnered with the division Land Care of the Department of AgriCulture, Western Cape in a “Tree project”. This project sees the growth of indigenous trees that are bought by the farmers in the region and planted mostly in areas where alien clearing has taken place.
This year over 10 000 trees were bought by over 100 farmers from within our networks and partnerships. Trees will also be donated to various rural schools within the Breedekloof Wine Valley within the next 2 months, all of which are part of the Junior Land Care Project.
Farmers were invited to collect their trees at an information day held on Wednesday, 01 June, where a number of our partners had stalls and shared information on various projects with the producers.
