Villa Esposto, situated in Klawer, Orange River valley.

Villa Esposto pays tribute to the many Italians who have played such a pivotal role in South Africa.  It pays particular homage to Louis Theodore Esposto who arrived from Italy in 1914 and the Italians who built the water canal that today is a vital “fountain of life” in this arid wine growing region of the Western Cape.
