Alvi’s Drift is located in the Breede River Valley on the Western Cape of South Africa and is owned by the Van Der Merwe family. Bertie Van Der Merwe works together with his two sons: Johan, a lawyer who has been working on the property for ten years, and Alvi, a medical doctor who has been on the property for seven years. Alvi’s Drift is the name of the drift near the farm, crossing the Breede river. The Drift was built by Alvi’s grandfather in 1928 who himself had an interest in wine.
