 Purchased in 2002, Gabriëlskloof was renamed after its original owner in 1860, Gabriel le Roux.

This farmland, just off the N2 after Botrivier, was previously covered with wheat and canola and a few wandering sheep.

It now has 70 hectares under vine and 50 hectares set aside for conservation, mostly consisting of Overberg Sandstone Fynbos and some critically endangered Western Ruens Shale Renosterveld. They have rehabilitated the fynbos in the area below the winemaker’s house by collecting fynbos seeds over a period of time and then scattering them across the slope.

A variety of birdlife has returned to the farm to delight birdwatchers young and old.

Area conserved: 52 ha

Location: Bot River
