Once a year, the Upper Blauwklippen vintners join forces to allow limited access to SA’s best-kept-secret boutique wine tasting experience in the spellbinding Upper Blaauwklippen valley. Meet the vintners and owners of three boutique wine farms, De Trafford, Keermont and Kleinood, for a truly exclusive and personal tasting.

This years’ experience takes place on Saturday the 8th of June from 11 am to 4 pm.

A visit to the Upper Blaauwklippen Vintners tasting feels like an escape to the country visiting friends, where you’ll hear the stories behind the wines and the farms, relax and meander through vineyards – glass-in-hand – or hop on the free shuttle provided on the day to explore all aspects of this hidden gem.

Visitors will get the chance to meet and join the owners and winemakers of three boutique, family-owned farms – Kleinood, Keermont, and De Trafford – as they provide guests with rare access to their farms to taste newly-released, hand-crafted vintages, as well as rare and coveted vinoteque wines.

A five-kilometre trip up the valley connecting the three farms leads along an elevation of 200 metres through abundant Cape fynbos, the Blaauwklippen river and lush vineyard blocks, where owners including renowned cellar design engineer Gerard de Villiers and winemaker Reynie Oosthuizen of Kleinood are using the least amount of intervention in the vineyard to make some of SA’s finest terroir-driven wines.

To participate in this very personal premium tasting experience – with very limited tickets available at R600 each – send an email to Wiena van Wyk on office@kleinood.com or call 021 880 2527.

The Upper Blaauwklippen Vintners tasting takes place in the Upper Blaauwklippen Valley just off the R44 between Stellenbosch and Somerset West.
