Location and Brief HistoryIn 1974 Billy Hofmeyr, a land-surveyor and his wife, Ursula bought the Monte Video farm - a 16,5ha estate sited on a ridge of land at Klapmuts, wedged between the motorway and the old highway to the north. With their savings they bought the farm and, having it renamed it Welgemeend after the last of Jan van Riebeecks working vineyards in Cape Town, they then set about re-establishing the dilapidated estate.
