It’s a land we love, and even more importantly, it’s a landscape we intimately understand thanks knowledge pass through generation. We have learnt which combination of cultivars, soil types and areas on the farm lends our wines the complexity and personality (styles) for which they’re celebrated – Kobus Deetlefs
The Deetlefs vineyards are established in the Western Cape at the foot of the Du Toitskloof Mountain range in the Breedekloof-area.It is these magnificent mountains that provide the early shadow formations and long cooling period at night. The vineyards benefit from the unique terroir on the banks of the Smalblaar River that forms the one border. Ideal conditions for enhancing the delicate and complex flavours in the grapes.
When it comes to wine, there is always more than meets the eye. From the land to the laboratory, bottelary and beyond, everything we do is done on the farm. If you’d like to read more about our process, follow the button below.
