De Krans Wines: Your summer destination for fruit picking and leisurely deli lunches…

What better way to relax and celebrate summer than visiting the countryside and getting closer to nature? When planning your trip, be it an extended SA road trip, a mini getaway or simply getting the kids out of the house, look no further than De Krans Wines in Calitzdorp – the top TripAdvisor destination in Calitzdorp.

Between 6 February and 7 March De Krans invites visitors to partake in a farm favourite of picking sweet Hanepoot grapes at R9.50 per kg.  These dates are weather dependent and may change slightly at short notice. To ensure you don’t miss out on the fun activity suited to the whole family, it is advisable to contact the farm prior to your planned visit, to confirm the picking dates.

A day out in the orchards is guaranteed to work up an appetite. The De Krans Deli & Bistro, situated at the farm, is home to a selection of delicious country cuisine and guaranteed to keep hunger at bay. Guests can look forward to hearty, wholesome dishes, ranging from a variety of delicious breakfast options, open deli sandwiches, light lunches, a selection of gourmet burgers and seasonal salads. All the dishes have been paired to be enjoyed with wines from the De Krans range, creating the perfect food and wine pairing. For those with a sweet tooth, be sure to keep an eye out for the delicious desserts on offer.

Visitors can choose to sit indoors or outside in the shade of the trellised Hanepoot vineyard. There is also a playground for young children, two boules courses, as well as a walk-around chessboard, making De Krans a wonderful place for the whole family to visit this summer.  The deli also offers visitors a wide selection of only the finest products sourced in and around Calitzdorp and the Klein Karoo. These include local olives, olive oil, canned and dried fruit, and preserves. Other treats include homemade rusks, Calitzdorp honey and other delicious gems from the area.

De Krans is home to a range of more than 20 superb wines and your visit won’t be complete without sampling some to add to your collection. We are especially proud of winemaker Christoff de Wet for the great success of his first harvest at De Krans and congratulate him and his team, both in the cellar and on the farm.  The entire range of De Krans ports and wines can be purchased directly from the cellar.
