South Africa: Workshops in the Cape Winelands

Get your team in touch with nature at Babylonstoren

Babylonstoren is one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms, set at the foot of Simonberg in the Franschhoek wine valley in the Cape Winelands. The estate has a vegetable garden, accommodation, fine food and wine and evokes a sense of wellbeing.

The regular hands-on workshops that are held by experts for guests give them a glimpse into the workings of projects on the farm. The candle and soapmaking workshop is a favourite for guests. The workshop starts with harvesting fragrant herbs such as rosemary and rose geranium, specially grown on the farm fort heir essential oils. The making of these beauty products surrounded by natural fragrances–is both meditative and indulgent. And once made, they are beautifully packaged for visitors to take home.
