The terroir of Waterkloof can be likened to that of Provence where they also use natural farming practices and organic and biodynamic vineyard processes. Vines can increase their immunity and guard themselves against disease as the soil is allowed to regenerate itself. You’ll see many horses walking around the vineyards which aid the working in of the soil.
The Blowing Man design on the bottle represents the God of the North Wine, Boreas which hints at how the circumstances of the Schaapenberg slopes form such a big part of producing fine winesm. Whilst 50 of 12 hectares are planted to vines, indigenous fynbos makes up the rest of the land and helps cultivate natural organisms needed to protect the earth. They are BWI (Biodiversity and Wine Initiative) accredited which means grapes are smaller, thicker skinned which aids fruit extraction and allows wines to age better.
There is stately architecture with a high glass building, a fine dining restaurant and a 360 degree fireplace designed by Frank Bohm. The gravitational cellar can be seen from inside the glass house. There’s a helipad for those who travel via the air, horseback trails, wine tastings and platters at the lapa.
