Tucked away among rolling valleys, just an hour from Cape Town along the N2, lies the secret gem of the Bot River wine route. This is “where real people make real wines”, and it’s here that you will find Gabriëlskloof, whose sole focus is to perfect the art of wine making.
Although a new arrival on the exciting Bot River wine scene, Gabriëlskloof’s wines have been a long time in the making. In 2001, general manager and viticulturist Barry Anderson passed on his passionate belief in the potential of the land to Bernhard Heyns, and since then there has been no looking back for Gabriëlskloof. After carefully matching cultivars and terroir, the first vines were planted in 2002 and in 2009 award-winning winemaker Kobie Viljoen joined the team to make the debut vintage.
