Situated in the Robertson valley, three generations of the De Wet family have realised their responsibilities as custodians of a unique natural environment and that the production of good wine is totally dependent on respect for the entire environment.

De Wetshof consists of a lengthy riverbank as well as sets of deep ravines carved into the hills. Here grey buck, duikers, hares, porcupines, snakes, mongooses, meerkats, otters and caracal are some of the wildlife still roaming the farm.

Recently the Robertson Birding Club counted 92 species in the region in one day. This astonishing diversity includes the giant and malachite kingfishers, peregrine falcon, African fish eagle, black eagle, paradise flycatcher and forktailed drongo.

Area conserved: 352 ha

Location: Robertson
