Additional Information
This story comes a long way and was told by Jan de Waal, the grandfather of the current owner, Pieter de Waal.
Jan started farming on the family farm in 1913. In the early days, horses were used to plow and work the vineyards. During winter days, daily around 12h00, the sun shone on a rock on the Stellenbosch Mountain. This was an indication (the signal) to the workers, who didn’t own watches at the time, that it was time for a lunch break.
