Fourth-generation farmer and vintner Stephan Basson was born and raised in the Swartland. He grew up on the family farm and this is where his love for farming and wine grapes was cultivated from a young age.
After his studies he joined his dad on the farm in 2003 and started making wine under the Babylon’s Peak brand. Stephan is a passionate and warm-hearted family man and is married to Inalize. They have three children – Annabel, Christiaan & Matthys – all of whom already share their family’s love for the farm. Stephan has dedicated his life to the wine industry and is passionate to keep the Basson legacy alive through the range of characterful Babylon’s Peak wines.
Success is no accident.
It is hard work, perseverance, learning,
studying, sacrifice and most of all,
love of what you are doing or learning to do.
