About Koopmanskloof Winery

Koopmanskloof is yet another wine estate which proves that age old wine traditions and hard work of a family makes for fine wines. Its legacy of wine can be traced to 1777. The Smit family have owned it since 1895. When the farm was passed onto Stevie Smit by his father, he set aside 98ha to fynbos to be declared a Private Nature Reserve in order to protect the endangered vegetation on his land. The WS Smit Family Trust currently owns this farm.

Five varietals can be found planted at Koopmanskloof: Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Sauvignon Blanc originates from Bordeaux in France and is cultivated as bush vine.

Chenin Blanc is very versatile in that it can be utilised to make dry white wines, sparkling wines, dessert wines and brandy. When yields of Carignan are kept low, high quality wines can be produced. This red grape variety is used to make Rose and the Shiraz is used to make dry, red table wine.

More than just great wine, Koopmanskloof grows olives too. Sample their freshly picked olives including Calamata, Mission (to be pickled or for making oil) or Leucino. Escape to the Berghuis on the farm and its spectacular view from Cape Hangklip, pizza oven, braai areas and inside hearth for icy nights.
