Your vine yard wedding

Vineyards were first planted at Cloof in 1966, with additional plantings in 1976 and 1987. In that time Darling, adjacent to the Swartland, was better known as a wheat farming region. A cellar was completed in time for the 1998 harvest, which allowed the first release of Cloof wines during the course of 1999. Vineyard area was significantly increased, with plantings every year from 1998 to 2000, bringing the total to 145 hectares. The 220 hectares of vineyards at neighbouring Burghers Post are under the same ownership, giving us unparalleled access to (and control over) top quality fruit.

 

Also occurring naturally is a variety of birds, reptiles and amphibians which are now also protected from persecution.  Some of the endangered or protected species include blue cranes, black eagles, black harriers and three tortoise species (i.e. Angulate tortoise, Parrot-beaked tortoise and the critically endangered geometric tortoise).
