The Farm- Kleinood, where Tamboerskloof wines are hand made. In the year 2000 the small farm, that was to become Kleinood, was very different from what it is now. Although its inherent natural beauty and charm was always there, it was, sadly, just a run down and neglected little fruit farm in a beautiful valley against a backdrop of majestic mountains and a river running through it. But it stole Gerard and Libby de Villiers’s hearts and they decided to give it their best.
In good time they established vineyards and an olive grove, then built the winery and started producing wine and then olive oil and finally, in 2008, moved in to where our hearts and passion lay.
Over time it has become a personal and highly individual project where no effort was spared in striving to produce a thing of excellence and beauty underpinned with a simple and holistic philosophy dedicated to explore, develop and use the full potential of the farm and human skills in order to produce the best Kleinood is capable of.
