Klein Karoo Wines

The Klein Karoo Wine Route in the Southern Cape is arguably the most diverse of South Africa’s wine regions. It is the easternmost wine producing region in the country, stretching along the Cape Route 62 from Montagu in the west to the Langkloof in the east.

The Klein Karoo is situated between spectacular mountain ranges, and its vines are mostly grown on the high slopes in the fertile alluvial soil along the riverbanks.

The climate is generally drier than that of the other wine regions, resulting in healthy vineyards which are grown organically to a large extent. 

Various microclimates enable Klein Karoo winemakers to produce a wide variety of quality wines, including dry wines, fortified wines and pot-stilled brandies. World-class Port and South Africa’s champion Muscadel are specialties among the fortified wines produced here, along with a host of outstanding red and white wines, which vary from full-bodied cabernets to lighter styles for easy drinking.

More than just an excellent range of wines, the Klein Karoo Wine Route offers visitors its unique cuisine, the warmth and hospitality of its people, and the mystique of its landscape. The Klein Karoo Wine Route invites you to toast their variety.

De Krans contributes to Terroir Awards

Klein Karoo Wine Route - De Krans contributes to Terroir AwardsThe Novare SA Terroir Wine Awards honours the wines which truly portray South Africa's different wine growing areas. Terroir has been the 'buzzword' among wine aficionados for several years now. The basic concept is to discover wines that best reflect the terroir in which they are produced. Since the strict rules of producing vineyards within a quota system in the certain areas were stopped many years ago, many agricultural sites have come to the fore as prime winegrowing areas.
