The South African winery Kleine Zalze is located less than three kilometres away from Stellenbosch. It was founded by Nicholas Cleef in 1683. None other than the founding father of South African wine cultivation, Simon van der Stel, was involved here and planted the first vines. Today’s winery Kleine Zalze Wines is owned by Kobus Basson. On approximately 100 hectares cultivation area, the winemaking team plants the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chenin Blanc as well as Chardonnay, Pinotage, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
The climatic conditions are perfectly suited for the cultivation of red and white wines alike. The climate with its Mediterranean and warm, sunny summers offers sufficient light intensity for the vineyards. The temperatures are between 26 and 36 degree Celsius. The winter months are pleasantly cool with their 15 degree Celsius but also never too cold. Furthermore, some of the higher located cultivation areas are advantageous since fresh sea breezes ideally cool the vines during the hot summers. As the vineyard is the beginning for the creation of great wines, the team leaves no stone unturned to produce the best grapes, from which the award-winning wines are made in the wine cellar. The efforts are rewarded – in 2021, Platter's Wine Guide named Kleine Zalze "Winery of the Year".
An excellent wine goes hand in hand with a delicious meal – this is what is served to guests at Kleine Zalze Restaurant by chef Nik van Wyk and his team. The regularly changing menu offers a selection of dishes of the day and tapas platters that enjoy great popularity and are the perfect complement to a glass of wine. The dessert variations successfully round off the culinary offer – so that the wines of Kleine Zalze can be enjoyed carefree.
