The property was bought by Slent Farms Company in 2005 from Chris and Judy New, and the Italian owners set out in a bold new direction. Attilio and Michela, with their partners – all Italian friends who love South Africa and have deep faith in its future – made the first Slent wine in 2005. The first day of the harvest was unforgettable, and it will be part of the Slent story for ever. The wine was named “AYAMA” – a Xhosa word meaning “someone to lean on” – as the owners believe their Slent adventure leans on friendship and love.
