Over the years this inspirational women’s month initiative, held in August each year, has grown in leaps and bounds and has become a highlight in the Cape Winelands calendar. The name ‘Proteas of the Valley’ was chosen last year, because just like this famous fynbos plant, these women also flourish and flower amidst harsh and difficult conditions.

Due to lockdown regulations we decided to honour the ladies by telling their stories not only in written format, but also on video.
