The Kleine Zalze Winery

KZ-Vineyards

Kleine Zalze is a family-owned winery situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, just two miles from Stellenbosch. Whilst the estate has been home to winemaking on a small scale since 1695, it was only in 1996, when Kobus Basson and his family purchased the property, that the modern Kleine Zalze was born.

Then in 2020 Kleine Zalze really came of age, being named Top Performing Winery of the Year by Platter’s South African wine guide, arguably the most comprehensive guide to South African wine in the world.

Three key components underpin the The Kleine Zalze philosophy; the vineyards, the cellar and the people. Firstly, the excellence of the vineyards are ensured by the careful selection of grape varieties and clones specifically suited to the cool climate and various soils and slopes. The cellar is responsible for beautiful blends and ensuring the wine is of the highest standard. And finally, this family-oriented winery cherishes its people, working together to combine their skills and share their passion for the art of quality winemaking.

A very real commitment to these three essential areas of the business is what makes Kleine Zalze wines truly distinctive and renowned for their typically South African character, bursting with lively, full-bodied flavours which reflect the local climate and terroir.

Further insights into the secrets of the winery’s success comes from Alistair Rimmer, the Kleine Zlalze Cellar Master who states, “good winemaking comes down to passion, patience, and most importantly balance.” 

Sustainability is an important consideration for Kleine Zalze, and their wines comply with the internationally recognised Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) scheme, which certifies that the grapes and wine are produced according to environmentally sustainable production methods.

And as if all that wasn’t good enough, they also support and are accredited by the Wine & Agriculture Ethical Trade Association (WIETA) and also actively support local charities and organisations that are involved in community empowerment.
