Hermanuspietersfontein

Hermanus

Sheep tells a Real Story

Was it not for these woolly little creatures we wouldn’t have a story to tell … the story of Hermanuspietersfontein, however, is fact not fable. Overberg farmers of the early 1800’s preferred their children to be schooled in Dutch, forerunner of Afrikaans. They paid farm teacher Hermanus Pieters in sheep, which grazed at a spring under the Milkwood trees near the sea. In 1855, long after his passing, the village was founded in his honour, only for the postmaster in 1902 to shorten the name to Hermanus.
150 years later we relived the past by naming our cellar brand Hermanuspietersfontein and decided a sheep should tell our modern day tales.  In memory of Hermanus Pieters and the passion of the people of the 1800’s we committed our wine names and labels to be exclusively Afrikaans.
