About Canettevallei Lavender
“There’s a few things I’ve learned in life: always throw salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for good luck and fall in love whenever you can” – William Shakespeare
Canettevallei is a wine and lavender farm that lies tucked away in Stellenboschkloof, a quiet valley situated about 10 kms outside Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. After travels to France and specifically Provence, we decided in 2005 to plant lavender in front of our home on the farm. This decision led to a business when we extended the land to three hectares of the lavender hybrid ”lavandin abrialis” (angustifolia x lavandula latifolia). Today we grow lavender using organic practices to develop unique, farm fresh lavender products for body, gifts and weddings. Our main products are lavender essential oil and lavender rice, the sweet-smelling dried flowers of the lavender plant.
