A tribute to the floral Kingdom
Cavalli’s environmental agenda is to conserve the endangered ecological zones of the Cape Floral Kingdom-A Unesco World Heritage site and home to 90% of South Africa’s Wine industry. Our love for the environment motivates our drive to rehabilitate the footprint of the land by planting thousands of plants and hundreds of mature trees with a focus on indigenous species.
Custodians of the land
The dream of the owners was to realise a project that is sustainable. For them, the prevailing identity of the site lay in its location of the 'Cape floral Kingdom' and that they were committed to be custodians of that land. The iconic views of the Helderberg, the indigenous gardens all contribute layers to the concept which was ultimately to pay tribute to the natural beauty that exists in the region.
