The Blue Owl Story
After farming for 3 generations Pieter Quixley the owner of the Riversmeet Farm felt it was time for him to retire. He approached his neighbours Wilfred and Elke Dauphin to see if they would be interested in buying the farm and incorporate it into their farm Allee Bleue.
Surrounded by 2 rivers on the southern and western borders the farm has an abundance of old tress and little forests on the river banks creating a natural conservancy for wild life to shelter and flourish in.
When Allee Bleue acquired the farm they found the wild life to be exceptional on the farm, especially the bird life.
In amongst this wonderful selection of bird life , the most special was the Owls. Within a few days of being on the farm we notice the most beautiful Owl who was living in the old barn on the farm, high up in the wooden roofs rafters.
This was her retreat during the day and at night she would leave the barn for her nightly patrols of the farm, this was most special and exciting to experience.
After some days and weeks had gone by she started to nest in the old barn and much to our amazement she blessed us with 2 baby owlets
It is from this beautiful story that we have named these wines
