Klein Karoo Wine Route
Axe Hill was started by the late Tony Mossop and wife Lyn, at a remote site on the outskirts of Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo during 1993. Mike Neebe took over in 2007 and has just completed his 12th harvest (2018).
Come and experience the range of the Boplaas Family Vineyard’s wines, only a stone’s throw from the crashing surf of the Southern Cape coast.
The Calitzdorp area is well-known for its fortified wines; primarily Cape Port, and is worth a stop along the world’s longest wine route. We invite you to browse our website and join us for tastings at our cellar.
De Krans Wine Cellar is situated along the upper reaches of the picturesque Gamka River Valley in Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo. The rich and long history of the farm dates back to 1890, when it was bought by the Nel family.
At Doornkraal, enfolded by the foothills of the Swartberge, we’ve been making wine since the late 1800’s. This is what the farm has become famous for, but we also cultivate lucern, vegetable seed and pastures for sheep, cattle, pigs and horses
Established in 2007, Du'SwaRoo is the smallest wine farm on the Klein Karoo wine route. Boutique farm style wines are produced in limited quantities from grapes from our own vineyards.
For 150 years the farm has been in the Schoeman family and grapes are being farmed here since 1930.
Just outside Oudtshoorn lie the vineyards of Sandkoppies, home of Grundheim Wines, established in 1858. Six generations have been farming here for more than a century.
Karusa is situated at the foothills of the majestic Swartberg in the tranquil and scenic Cango Valley in Schoemanshoek, close to Oudtshoorn. The farm is en-route to the world-famous Cango Caves.
Synonymous with Ladismith is Towerkop (“Magic Mountain”), that shelters the town – the logical choice for the cellar’s flagship label. It also speaks of our deep rootedness in Ladismith and Klein Karoo winemaking since the cellar began operating independently in 1939
