Hermanus History Society visit to COMPAGNESDRIFT

Hermanus History Society

Hermanus History SocietyCompagnesdrift was probably the first farm to be established at the foothills of the HouwHoek Mountains in the early part of the eighteenth century as a stopover for early travelers heading east on the Old Cape Wagon Way.

This is now  home to Beaumont Wines, a family run farm acquired by Jayne and Raoul Beaumont in 1972,.  Jayne Beaumont talked to the Hermanus history society about the history of the farm and we accompanied her on a fascinating tour of the old homestead, restored water mill and wine cellar.
