Comeback King - Excelsior



Designer: Fanakalo
Project Type: Produced, Commercial Work
Location: Stellenbosch, South Africa

Jacobus de Wet, the Comeback King, as he was known, was my great-grandfather and this is his story. He always had a ‘glass half full’ attitude towards business. Despite many setbacks he always picked himself up and carried on. Jacobus farmed through a very turbulent period in South Africa’s history. His career started fantastically, where he made a fortune from farming with ostriches. With the fortune he made, he built a manor house, which became known locally as the “Feather Palace”. Then disaster struck for Jacobus. But that’s a story for another vintage. Peter de Wet - 5th generation owner To be enjoyed with a smile and a positive attitude.
