Plaisir Wine Estate: Farm 8 (Vacant land for sale)

Truly a rare and unique offering, we are proud to present three exceptional vacant farmlands for sale. The Founders Estates comprise 3 sections of vacant land, each differing in size. Part of the original Plaisir Wine Estate, the swathes of land boast a diverse terroir, fertile soil, lush vineyards planted to different varietals, as well as sufficient water supply and dams. Plaisir spans approximately 974 hectares with some 400 hectares under vine. The remaining hectares are largely left untouched, preserving the indigenous biomes of plant and animal life. Located at the foot of the majestic Simonsberg Mountain's east-facing slopes, the estate has a rich history of viticulture dating back to the early 18th century and is today an inspired leader in biodiversity and a recognised partner of the WWF. The natural beauty of this area set against the mountainside is a veritable paradise, with outdoor trails and tracks on your doorstep. These unmatched portions of land in the heart of the Cape Winelands unearth a great development opportunity for the discerning buyer keen to create and enjoy an exceptional lifestyle. One of the largest wine estates in the Cape Winelands, Plaisir has been recognised throughout its tenure as an estate that produces high quality wine. The diverse terroir experiences an interchange of climatic conditions which allows for wet winters and warm summers. Rivers and wetlands are priority areas, and the farm ensures that these aquatic zones are maintained in their natural state. Restoration through the planting of indigenous trees and vegetation ensures the continued functioning of these ecosystems. The Cape leopard, honey badger, buck, barn owl, otters, mongoose, and caracal are but a few of the fauna to be found on the farm. Approximately four years ago the rare Grey Leaf Fountain Pincushion / Rainbow Pincushion was discovered on the farm, one of a handful of locations where this iconic species can be found.
