Camphor Trees over 300 years old at Vergelegen Wine Estate

300 year old camphor trees at Vergelegen Wine Estate, in Somerset West in 1700 by Willem Adriaan van der Stel. The estate covers 300 hectares in the town of Somerset West.
These camphor trees were planted over 300 years ago in front of the homestead on Vergelegen Wine Estate in Somerset West. They have been declared national monuments and they are magnificent it is hard to capture the size of these trees in a photograph and it is really worth the visit to Vergelegen to see the interesting history of this estate and walk around the estate. Vergelegen is owned by Anglo and is in pristine condition. You can take the family for a picnic or have lunch at one the restaurants on the estate and of course there is wine tasting.
