Are you strong enough for emotions?

It was a beautiful sunny day, when we first saw the farm. It was love at first sight: we knew this place was special, and would mean so much to us. Both passionate about agriculture and wine, proudly Italian but in love with South Africa, with its history, its people and its awesome natural environment, we were looking for a farm to buy and live.

Slent Farms: true people, true taste.

Slent means land, people and passion. Grapes need tender, love and care – 60 hectares of vineyards, 11.5 ha of export plums, 2.5 ha of pears and 9 ha of olives. Slent means 45 people, adults and children, whose lives are invested in the farm.

A talented and hard-working young manager, Callie Hefer, who joined the team last November 2012, runs the day-to-day management. Slent people have different stories, but they all have the same passion for wine, respect for each other and for the environment.

Welcome to Paarl, the soul of our terroir.

The Cape winelands are some of the most breathtakingly beautiful in the world. About 50 km from Cape Town, Paarl is situated beneath a large granite outcrop formed by three rounded domes, the prominent one named Paarl (which means pearl) rock. The summers are long and warm, and rainfall rare. A large variety of grapes are grown in Paarl, of which Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc have the best potential.
