Rhebokskloof | Paarl, South Africa
Rhebokskloof Wine Estate is a magnificent 600-hectare property spanning two lush valleys and lies at the foot of the Cape’s imposing Paarl Mountain. Dating from 1692, this historic estate was carved up into several smaller farms during the early 20th century, though recent owners have sought to reverse this. Rhebokskloof is now under the ownership of a group of wine-passionate South African business people with a vision, to restore it to its former glory. The project will see Rhebokskloof's splendid Cape Dutch buildings refurbished to their former glory.
Rhebokskloof has an unique terroir, composed of decomposed granite from the hills surrounding the estate and the slopes of the famous Paarl Rock mountain. The estate is especially known for its Shiraz vineyards, but the rolling hills of vineyards surrounding Rhebokskloof produce various varietals, including Grenache, Mourvèdre, Pinotage, Viognier and Chardonnay.
