Seagulls Nest Bed and Breakfast is near Newstead Wines
They come from two families with rich farming heritage. Their crest combines the roots of both – the lion of the Lunds and the stag of the Robinsons. And yet, Newstead represents a departure for both of them.
From sugar and dairy farms in KwaZulu-Natal, they came to make wine in the Garden Route.
They brought their own young family to The Crags and in 2006, when the Plettenberg Bay Wine of Origin region was in its infancy, and they bought 11.5 hectares of fallow land.
They have planted vineyards of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. They built their home and their tasting room.
