The Newt in Somerset

The Newt in Somerset is a reimagined country estate owned by South Africans, the former editor of Elle Decoration South Africa, Karen Roos; and SA billionaire businessman, founder of MultiChoice pay-TV group in Africa, founding father of mobile telephone group, MTN and chairman of Naspers, Koos Bekker. 

The dynamic duo also own the vineyard, Babylonstoren, which is why they will be giving visitors to the Chelsea Flower Show a first taste of the newly-released Mourvèdre Rosé 2024, which is also the official rosé of RHS Chelsea. 

The Newt’s Fine Cyder is once again the official cyder of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
