Drakenstein Stud is situated on the wine farm L’Ormarins on the bottom slopes of the Groot Drakenstein mountain range. Huguenot Jean Roi, who was born in the town of Lourmarin, Provence, fled France in 1688 and settled in the Franschhoek valley where he established the wine farm L’Ormarins.
Today this is the home of Drakenstein Stud where paddocks and vines stand side by side, the vines occupying the upper slopes of farm and the horses the lower. The first foal born on the farm was named Jean Roi in honour of the first owner.
Drakenstein Stud stands some of the most exciting sires at stud in South Africa, Trippi (USA), Philanthropist (USA), Horse Chestnut and What A Winter.
