Fodor's Review

You have to move fast if you want to snap up any wines from the Kloovenburg Wine Estate. This family-run farm has many awards under its belt and is probably best known for its excellent Shiraz. Wines to take home are the Shiraz 2012, a ruby red wine with smoky flavors and a chocolaty aftertaste, and the Merlot 2012, with sweet berry and oak flavors and excellent aging potential. The 2010 Eight Feet is a fun but very drinkable testimony to the generations of du Toits who have worked the land: it alludes to the eight grape-stomping feet of the owners' four sons. Don't miss out on Annalene du Toit's olive products. Kloovenburg olives and olive oils are exceptional, and they manufacture olive oil beauty products too. A highlight is the annual market day in December, when everybody from the area displays their products and you can get a real taste of local produce and home-crafted goods.
