Kalmoesfontein is

  • the home of AA Badenhorst Family Wines, set against the slopes of the Paardeberg mountain.
  • a working wine farm where you are surrounded by nature and plenty of opportunities for a good time
  • versatile with diverse settings and locations available – from The Old House with a working kitchen, pizza oven, bar and two porches; to the wine and Caperitif cellars and a clearing around a maypole in the forest – to name a few.
  • full of locals who can and will go to great creative and logistical lengths to make sure your event and/or stay exceeds your expectations.
We cook, decorate & forage, we do flowers and lights… We bake, we braai, we pour drinks - we check every detail and we do it all with Swartland style and hospitality.

Kalmoesfontein is also

a proper animal farm and childrens’ playground
See the small animal booklet - in your accommodation - for more information and fun stories. Then get your kids to explore with the treasure map and ​see how many of our furry and feathered friends they can find.
Unfortunately our horses are not for riding (they are plough horses who work hard in the vineyards).
and a good place to explore
We have re-opened an old Cape Epic route as a hiking trail that starts from The Old House - with a climb up to Die Bos - and crosses over four farms (Babylons Peak, Uitkyk, Lemoenfontein and obviously Kalmoesfontein). In total it is about 5.1km and takes 2hours at a very leisurely pace.
