A family owned and run vineyard since 1898, now in its third generation and situated on the picturesque slopes of the Simonsberg Mountains just outside of Paarl is Klein Simonsvlei – the home of Niel Joubert Wines.
With its unique climate the Paarl region has established itself as an extraordinary producer of elegant wines on an international scale. Wine lovers the world over flock to South Africa and spend days on the wine-route sampling the best we have to offer, Niel Joubert Wines and his Klein Simonsvlei estate only add to that incredible heritage built up over hundreds of years.
Originally purchased in 1898 by Piet Joubert, for his son Daniel, the farm was producing 50 tons per annum, a mere half century later, Daniels love, dedication and commitment that he poured into the vineyards resulted in an annual tonnage of 800 – all pressed in the estates cellar. Niel jnr. took the helm in 1950 and further improved upon the quality whilst also achieving the family’s dream of their own label once the sanctions imposed on the Apartheid government were lifted. Entrusted with the legacy of their farm Daan has now taken over from Niel and continues the Niel Joubert Wine promise of “Every bottle filled with pride for your enjoyment.”
