Clovelly Wines can be found in the picturesque town of Stellenbosch, an area renowned for its superb wines. This area boasts a winemaking heritage which stems back to the 17th century. It’s also a place where many talented winemakers have been trained in their craft. Clovelly is a small premium producer who gets to enjoy the Hutton and Clovelly soils of this region. Stellenbosch is known for its blended reds and noble grape varieties.
Jacques Fourie is the man behind the winemaking and has gained invaluable experience by working at various estates around the country. He focuses on the words of “look, smell, taste, fell, listen”. 3.5 ha are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon with the rest of the grapes for Cabernet Sauvignon and Clovelly Triangle supplied from producers in the area and Chardonnay from the Robertson region. Mineke Toerien-Fourie, husband Jacques Fourie and father Deon Toerien own this wine estate.
