Founded by Paul Boutinot in 2004, Waterkloof is a family-owned, organic, biodynamic and WWF Biodiversity Champion farm perched high up on the windswept Schapenberg, overlooking False Bay and The Atlantic Ocean.
Living soils, naturally low yields and a long growing season help provide talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard with naturally balanced grapes that are imbued with a truly defining sense of origin. Those grapes are then transformed into wine with a minimum of intervention. The resulting wines are fine, inimitable and best enjoyed with food.
Waterkloof is fully biodynamic. Half the estate is left to the native wilderness and in 2008 was awarded Champion Status by the WWF's Biodiversity and Wine Initiative. They have a formal nature conservation plan in place, with a key aim being to restore the indigenous flora and fauna of The Cape.
Their aim to produce wine with a 'truly defining sense of origin' has led them to organic & biological farming, allied with minimal intervention winemaking.
