Spring Water Collection Point Policy

Spring Water collection point

Cape Point Vineyards has saved enough water to be able to provide a water collection point

Cape Point Vineyards are proud ambassadors of the Water Wise Movement.

Steps to reduce our water consumption and do our bit for the Cape Drought include no longer using linen in the restaurant and converting to waterless hand sanitisers in our restrooms.  To stave off day zero, we have been very conservative in watering our vines and we do not water the lawns at the homestead and on our verges.

Over the past two winters we have directed mountain spring water and rain water into a series of dams on Cape Point Vineyards Estate.  The water in these dams are tested on a monthly basis to ensure that the water is fit for human consumption.  This water is then passed through an intricate filtration system, connected to the taps in the Restaurant farm buildings and homestead.

Cape Point Vineyards uses no municipal water

As a result of this two pronged approach we have not only been able to remove ourselves completely off the municipal grid,  but we are in a position where we are able to pump water back into the grid by sharing it with our community.

Cape Point Vineyards has a water collection point where each of Cape Point Vineyards’ 80+ employees are entitled to collect 5L of filtered water and 25L of dam water per day.

Restaurant guests, tour guides and our immediate neighbours are also invited to collect 5L of filtered mountain spring water and 25L of dam water from our water collection point per visit/day.

About the Concert Duo:
The Karlsruhe Concert Duo, founded in 1997 by the cellist Reinhard Armleder and the pianist Dagmar Hartmann, is suc- cessful and in demand in Germany and abroad. The ensemble has established itself not least by winning several international competitions. The Duo is regularly highly praised for fascinating its public by the depth of its interpretations, brilliant technique and its imaginative choice of programmes which often contain rediscovered works of little known composers.
The Duo won first prizes in international competitions: In Italy in the Lorenzo Perosi competition in Biella, in Moncalieri (both in 1999) and in the competition in Racconigi (in 2001). In France the Duo won the Concours Pierre Lantier in Paris (in 2000) and the U.A.F.M. competition in Chaville (2003).
Reinhard Armleder and Dagmar Hartmann fascinate their public all over the world. In only the past seven years, the Duo has travelled to more than 40 countries, successfully taking part in renowned festivals and concert series, as for example the Beethoven Music Society Washington, Schubert Society London, Festival de Musique au Château de Bourglinster/Luxembourg, Festival Art November Moskau, Haifa Music Festival, Concert Series Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP), Darling Music Festival South Africa or Johannesburg International Mozart Festival.
They further have recorded various Radio and Television pro- ductions as well as several CD‘s under the fiori classics label. While still studying, the two musicians went on their first tours to Israel (1998 and 2003) and to various countries in Europe. The Duo has, in the meantime, traveled to most of the European countries.
In 2006 the Duo made their debut in the USA, having been invited by the Beethoven-Society in Washington. In 2007 and 2009 the Duo went on tours to the United States and Canada with extremely successful appearances in the most important cities. In 2008 and 2009 the Duo went to Russia, in the same years and in 2012 to the Middle East and to the Arabian Peninsula. Their first tour to South America took place in 2010, the first tour to Southeast Asia and China in 2011. In 2013 the Duo traveled to India and Bangladesh, to the African continent (South Africa, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia) and performed in Iceland, Italy, Spain and Poland.
In 2014 they gave concerts in Ethiopia and South Africa as well as in Luxembourg, Jamaica, Nicaragua and in the USA.
To quote praise by a specialist publication: “… it is rare to find a duo with such a fortunate and intense combination of a kindred musicality, affinity and interaction with their instruments.”
