Poetically inspired by his vineyard; viticulturist Jean De Villiers has unbridled passion for wine-making. His dedication to the vineyard is tangible, and can be seen by his dedicated presence in and around the objects of his desire, the vine, of which it is said that he is the willing slave... “Year after year, I watched at close range... every month, every week, every day I witnessed it... From daybreak when the sun hides the stars until dusk...” Such is the passion that goes into every bottle at Klein Roosboom.
Located at the coastal entrance to one of the most exquisite, if not indeed thee premiere, wine-making areas of Southern Africa Durbanville wine valley. The Atlantic oceans proximity to the farm has transformed the yield as the cool afternoon breezes lock into the grape, the most delicate of flavours. Wines on offer include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Bandana Blanc and Shiraz. Vineyards enjoy the extravagantly nutritious soils of Hutton, Oakleaf and Clovelly. The south facing slopes also provide the ideal conditions and climates for the Cabernet, Shiraz and Merlot.
