Beaumont Biodiversity and the Green Mountain Eco-route
Raoul and Jayne Beaumont have been instrumental in conserving both the historical and natural beauty of the farm. With only 34 hectares under vine, the vast majority of the 400 hectare farm consists of pristine fynbos-rich mountainside and forms part of the greater Green Mountain Conservancy area, of which the Beaumont family were founding members.
Two beautiful mountain trails have been established on the farm with the wonderful help of Gerald McCann, his assistants and our farm team. These trails traverse our portion of the Green Mountain Eco Route (www.greenmountain.co.za) which is the first Biodiversity and Wine Route in the world. On these trails, you may well spot our resident Black Eagles; while Cape Leopards still prowl the mountain-side. Although you’re highly unlikely to spot the leopard, incredibly diverse flora and wonderful views are certain rewards.
