10km outside the idyllic wine region of Robertson, the family run cellar, DuVon Wines can be found in the picturesque surroundings of the farm “Little Italy.” DuVon’s owners are the team of Uncle Alex von Klopman and nephew Armand du Toit who have taken great pride in restoring the farm’s old cellar (dating back to the 1940’s) to the passion filled producer it is today.
Filled with immense passion themselves, the duo have winemaking in their blood and the fruits of their labour are marks of their legacy as well as extraordinary wines. The young wineries first red vintage, a Cabernet Sauvignon was successfully bottled in 2003 followed two years later by the white of Sauvignon Blanc. They remain the primary cultivars produced here at DuVon. Armand’s enthusiasm for wine-making was set on fire began in his younger years, and, inspired by his parents he produced his first wines at the age 19.
The commitment shared by both Armand and Alex to produce noble, elegant wines is evident from the moment you set foot on the estate. A wedding venue and guest house also reside on the estate so take the time out to make an appointment for a tasting and enjoy sipping the spectacular from the pool side, whilst enjoying vineyard views extending 29 acres.
