Living close to Nature

Lammershoek in the heart of the picturesque Paardeberg winegrowing area, is a quite undiscovered gem of scenic beauty. A stone’s throw away from the bustling city of Cape Town, this is a tranquil haven of breathing space close to nature with unbeatable views that speak to the soul.

With the underlying philosophy of living close to nature for more than three centuries on this farm, exceptional quality grapes are produced in harmony with the rich animal and birdlife which thrive on large tracts of natural vegetation preserved by pioneering farming families over the years. 

The extraordinary farm and winery have evolved as part of the larger Swartland region’s unique wine characteristics and culture. All with the utmost respect for each beautiful flower, insect, bird, bug and the delightful small deer that form part of nature’s abundance here.

Named Lammershoek Farms & Winery, the enterprise is today owned by Andreas Abold, originally from Germany and joint owner with long-time Swiss friend and businessman, Fedor Radmann.

Former co-owner and famous soccer legend Franz Beckenbauer stepped out in 2019 for personal reasons but remains an avid supporter of the winery through its flagship wine, Libero No 5, the name derived from his sporting nickname.    

The visitor will find the cellar complex on an undulating gravel road, nestling against one of the area’s typical rolling hills, with mesmerising views of vineyards, green fields, rich fynbos vegetation and cattle pastures – all to the backdrop of spectacular mountains and living proof that in this picturesque, protective haven the fauna and flora are respected and cherished as part of the interactive whole.

The tastefully restored farmhouse and adjacent offices blend in with an expansive indigenous garden linking with the cellar building – a characterful fusion of old and new, including operational old cement tanks and a new wood-maturation cellar.

Our Wine Ranges

Rather than manipulating the lovely old bush-vine fruit into something ‘unnatural’, we merely guide the juice along its way to showcase what can be achieved with the characteristic Swartland fruit character. The grapes reach phenolic ripeness at a very early stage, helping production with minimum intervention.

LIBERO NO.5 

“Very nice boutique winery where they do the things on their own way. The grapes are rocking in the bottles because the winemakers have a huge set of speakers in their cellar and a very big logo of the rolling stones on the wall”

GERTJAN STROEKEN
