At Ruitersvlei we have engaged with the local communities in order to contribute to the social upliftment of the community.
We are renovating the accommodation of our workers.
We currently contribute financially to the running of a school on the other side of the Agterpaarl road.
We have already contributed to the training of all farm and other workers and most of the hospitality and restaurant staff comprise ex-farmworkers.
All the cellar workers underwent the IPW training in 2016, and our resident wine-maker will be the first local fully qualified wine maker by the end of September 2016.
Ruitersvlei supports financially the local Bergendal Primary School, and our own creche and nursery school on the farm.
