RIEBEEK VALLEY • SWARTLAND
Mediterranean cultivars dominate among the 110ha of vines on the 300ha Kloovenburg. These include Carignan, Shiraz, Grenache noir and blanc, Roussanne, Verdelho and Chenin Blanc. It also produces Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. The first wine was made in 1997, by current owner Pieter du Toit who grew up here. A new cellar followed in 2000. In addition to the wines, the Du Toit family farms olives and table grapes, and hosts visitors for tastings and farmstays at its location along the Riebeek Mountain.
The Kloovenburg Pastorie Guest House is a restored historic property, offering luxury country accommodation with breathtaking views over the village and valley.
