Despite its extra-ordinary beauty, the Banhoek valley outside Stellenbosch remains relatively unknown. Yet few regions in South Africa can claim such a rich and fascinating history, from the arrival of early settlers, slaves and farmers through to the present day.

Beautiful Banhoek  explores this captivating region and its fertile land which produces some of the Cape’s finest fruit and some of its most acclaimed wines created either in the old-fashioned, traditional manner or in high-tech, state of the art wineries.

The photographs in the book capture the ever changing colours of the seasons in the vineyards and orchards of the Banhoek valley, and the moods of the surrounding mountains.

It encapsulates the alluring timelessness of a place where leopard and baboon continue to roam freely amidst the craggy peaks.

It illustrates this unique valley in all its varied aspects, documenting and celebrating one of the Cape’s best kept secrets.
