In the early 1940’s a young woman came to a small town in the Western Cape. After a few years of teaching, she married a local wine farmer and horse breeder, gave up teaching, started a family and immersed herself in her husband’s wine business and shared his passion for horses.
After identifying the vineyards and, by extension, from which soils the best wines came, she persuaded her husband to plant 3 hectares of vineyards on a rocky limestone outcrop she called Stonehurst. The wines from this limestone outcrop were a great success.
Stonehurst has been launched to commemorate this remarkable pioneering woman with a passion for wine and horses.
