Vintners beckon to best-kept-secret valley

Kleinood owner Gerard de Villiers strolls in an olive orchard with his dog Festa.

Set in the lush folds of one of South Africa’s best-kept-secret valleys, the vintners of three Stellenbosch wine farms – Kleinood, Keermont and De Trafford – are collaborating to host their second annual wine tasting experience with an array of gourmet delights on Saturday June 10, from 11am to 4pm.

Each of the upper Blaauwklippen vintners produce the highest quality terroir specific and hand-crafted wines, and this year, each farm will showcase their current release wines, as well as rare and special vinoteque wines, including the De Trafford chenin blanc, Keermont Estate blend and Kleinood Tamboerskloof Syrah. Tickets are limited, and bookings can be done by emailing or calling Jessica at Kleinood wines on 021 880 2527.
