The French Huguenot Jacob de Villiers came to the Cape in 1688 and bought the Boschendal wine farm between Franschoek and Stellenbosch. A descendant of Jacob, Gerard de Villiers and his wife Libby found a piece of land with Blaauwklippen and Moordenaarskloof rivers at the foot of the Stellenbosch mountains and bits of forest on it in 2000. They renamed the farm Kleinood. It is an Afrikaans word meaning something small or precious. And this is exactly what the farm is to the family- a small farm so dear to their hearts.

They focus on producing Syrah based red wine, Viognier and Syrah Rosé. Ten hectares are devoted to vines whilst the remaining two consist of olive trees. De Boerin is the name of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil and comes from the Annetjie Boom’s nickname. She was the wife of van Riebeeck’s gardener Hendrik Boom and the first innkeeper and restaurant owner in the Cape in 1665 and called Annetkie de Boerin.

After careful soil consideration, they planted Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Rousanne and Viognier on North and West facing slopes. Before moving here the family lived in Tamboerskloof and hence the name of their wine’s name, Tamboerskloof meaning valley (Kloof) of the drums (tamboer). Sample their Tamboerskloof Syrah, Tamboerskloof Voignier and Tamboerskloof Rose.
