The farm Alfalfa was originally bought by Alvi senior. In 1928 and is now owned by Bertie and his two sons Alvi, a GP and Johan, a lawyer. The 5000 hectare piece of Scenic Mountain, veldt and riverside has approximately 360 hectares under 19 grape varieties. The Alvi’s Drift range (named after the low-water bridge spanning the Breede River on the farm) was introduced. The first bottling started in 2005 and has done exceptionally well.

The farm also boasts an intensive dairy operation, managed by Johan van der Merwe. Apart from fresh milk distributing more than a ton of cheese is made daily. The Alfalfa-Feta is the 2006 S.A. Champion Feta. Apart from traditional cheddar, speciality cheeses such as the Alvi’s drift Port, Muscadel and Hannepoot cheddar are made. Plain Havarti, Cumin and mustard Havarti, as well as Mozzarella are also available.

Alvi’s drift private cellar is modern equipped with French, European and American oak barrels, stainless steel tanks and an underground maturation cellar. The services of the veteran ex-Nederburg cellar master, has heralded the dedicated and passionate wine maker, Alvi van de Merwe’s move into making wines from special vineyard and tank selection.
