Keermontresults 1-1 of 1
In 1843 Henricus Roux, and his brother Paul bought a piece of land which they named Keerweder Farm. The name, derived from Dutch and meaning ‘to turn around’, refers to one reaching an impassable barrier. Previously, settlers had tried to establish a wagon track over the mountain pass to Vergelegen in Somerset West but they had had to turn around as the vegetation was too dense and the terrain unsuitable for wagons. The road which runs up through Keermont Vineyards into De Trafford, our neighbouring vineyard, is the original wagon track which ended in “Wolwebos” (Wolf Forest). In 1991, the “Wolwebos” was destroyed by a fire, except for the lone Cape Beech tree which can be found in the middle of one of De Trafford’s vineyards. One can still see signs of other wagon tracks, above Keermont’s Steepside vineyard and on the neck going down into the valley. These tracks end abruptly; signalling the several attempts to create a road through to Somerset West. A few years later, Henricus Roux bought his brother’s portion of land and then split his land up to create three farms; Keerweder I, II and III for each of his three sons to farm. Above Keerweder III, the Roux family kept a communal portion of land available for cattle grazing. Although Keerweder I & II stayed within their family until the early 1990s, Keerweder III was sold in 1969 to the Du Plessis family. In 1976, Alastair Trafford arrived from Durban and bought the communal grazing land at the top of the Blaauwklippen Valley. He named his new farm, Mont Fleur. In 1980, the Arnolds arrived in the valley and bought Keerweder III as well as a portion of land that was once used for grazing from Alastair Trafford. At that time, the farm was planted with rootstock, fruit orchards and used to cultivate king proteas. Then, in 1997, James Arnold sold the upper portion of his farm to Graham Boonzaier, who renamed it Fleurfontein. In 2003, the Wraith family moved to the Western Cape from Gauteng and bought Fleurfontein as well as Keerweder III. These two farms are now farmed as one Estate known as Keermont Vineyards. Mark and Monica Wraith currently live on Keermont Vineyards with their family. 2005 saw the start of a major vineyard planting programme on lands that had been fallow for a number of years. The planting programme is now complete with nearly 27Ha under vine (see Vineyards and Viticulture on our Vineyards Page). In 2010 a spring water bottling plant, which had been built on Fleurfontein by Graham Boonzaier, was converted into a fully functional winery complete with offices, tasting room, processing facilities and barrel rooms.
