Beyerskloof – a purposeful vineyard
The Beyerskloof winery is among the younger generation in South Africa. In 1988 a renowned winemaker, named Beyers Truter, founded in cooperation with four other well educated connoisseurs the very estate, pursuing the maxim “wine with extraordinary character”. In the course of time the Beyerskloof vineyard settled down in Koelenhof, a lovely region located centrally in Stellenbosch. From then on winemakers ambitiously began to attain success. In fact, it did not take too long by the time the first noble grapes were ripe to bring up excellent red wine and white wine. The winery has already been rewarded several times and has received international awards.
Beyerskloof in perpetual progress
Beyerskloof adapted to a forward-looking strategy which was determined by the winemakers over a period of time. The vineyard’s goal is to be always a step ahead. Accordingly, the winemakers pay attention to produce only high-class South African wine, as it is supposed to inspire its consumers in terms of genuine quality. Often, Beyerskloof provides the national grape Pinotage becoming increasingly more significant. Those are responsible for a unique wine experience and represent the high South African wine quality.
Beyerskloof – Soils resemble Bordeaux-soils
Beyerskloof’s soils resemble the mineral composition of Bordeaux soils. The climate and the advantageous location in Koelenhof immensely contribute to competing in a high class. Moreover, grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinotage are received in high yields. Additionally, Beyerskloof is popular because of sparkling wines and delicious rosés.
Winemakers hardly make use of artificial watering. Instead, the wine growing is based on natural resources; the terroir should evolve in a natural manner. The vineyard Beyerskloof is thus able to make South African wine containing the spirit of South African life.
