HISTORY OF SLENT

Someone To Lean On

When we first saw Slent, it felt as if we had finally come home. This amazing country was deep in our hearts.

Stone Age hand axes found on the farm speak to us of our earliest ancestors, and Slents’ more modern colonial history connects us to the pioneers who dared all to settle on these fertile slopes. We wish to keep this farm deeply connected to its vibrant past, and to grow the Slent and its’ people towards an even better future.

We have worked hard to understand climate, soils, varietals, bio-diversity and different cultures. It has taken some time to adapt our Italian roots to all this, but belief and passion gives us the ability to rise to the challenge, and the strength to succeed.
