AA Badenhorst Family The story goes that Hunter S.
Thompson met up with Elvis in Vegas and got married in 3 minutes flat and then divorced 45 minutes later. Although not confirmed, it is rumoured that winemaker Adi Badenhorst owes his existence to this union. After growing up in a barrel, Adi then went on to make a name for himself at Rustenberg. Recently he and his cousin, Hein, bought the farm, Kalmoesfontein, situated on the Malmesbury side of the Paardeberg. It is here that Adi crafts small quantities of wine destined for collectors from all over the known world.
