The farm was originally established in the 1700’s by the Dutch East India Company. In the 1940’s the wine business was initially started but wine production was discontinued in the late 1960’s. Jayne and Raoul Beaumont bought the farm Compagnes Drift in 1974 and set about replanting the vineyards. However, the legacy of creating wines in the farm cellar under the family name was only initiated years later. After generations of partnering with nature, the land now offers some of the finest vineyards in the area. Together with a non-conformist approach to winemaking, these vines produce notably balanced, classical and artisanal wines. Sebastian Beaumont is in charge of both the vineyards and winemaking.
The nose is an explosion of dark fruit and violets and then flavours of black pepper, thyme, and red meat. A deliciously rustic wine.
Spicy roasted red meat or game, or rich hearty dishes such as paella with chorizo and hot spices.
