In The Vineyard

Vineyards: Bush vine against Bottelary Hills; 23 years old with east-west row direction.

Koopmanskloof Vineyards and its wine making tradition date back to 1777. The name depict the profession and location of an indigenous community who embrased fair trade with the first European ships to visit the Cape of Good Hope during the 16th century. Koopmans is Dutch for trader and 'Kloof' is a Ravine.

Late owner, Stevie Smit, set aside 98 ha of his farm as a fynbos reserve and started the Vineyard Trail - a 24 km walk through vineyards and mountain heath along the ridge of the Bottelary Hills. Adding to the outdoor experience, the 'Berghut' was build in 1983, situated on Koopmanskloof hills, overlooking the beautiful Cape Winelands.
