Klein Optenhorst lies in the historic Bovlei Valley near Wellington in the Western Cape. The nineteenth century farmhouse looks out to a large farm dam with fine views of the surrounding landscape on the foothills of the Groenberg Mountain.
Owners, Naas and Jenny Ferreira have over the years, established a terraced garden which is home to one of the largest collections of Salvias in South Africa. A selection of rare and unusual plants is available in the nursery, which is open to the public on open days, or by appontment.
In 1990, a half hectare of Pinot Noir vineyard was established. The grapes are currently vinified to sparkling wine in the Methode Champanoise style by renowned winemaker, Pieter Ferreira.
