Arij van Wijk, one of Adam Tas’ supporters in his struggle against WA van der Stel, became the owner of Schinderkuijl in 1705, hence the front gable with its fancy A-frame and lovely plasterwork. It was also Arij who, by planting vines, transformed Schinderkuijl/Leeuwenkuijl into one of the early wine farms

Following its subdivision in 1800, the farm’s name was changed from Schinderkuijl to Leeuwenkuijl. The word “kuijl” refers to the watering holes that were found in what is currently known as the Mosselbank River and the Hans Lourens River. Since the area around Leeuwenkuijl provided plenty of resting places – public areas where farmers and their cattle could rest and drink water – many farmers chose to spend the night here. The Cape Lion posed one of the biggest threats to the cattle farmer and the name Leeuwenkuijl refers to one of these holes where farmers spent the night and had their cattle attacked by lions. The Dreyer connection with the farm however, is already highlighted following Johannes Augustus’ marriage to Sarah van Wijk, the daughter of Arij van Wijk
