Piekenierskloof winery: along the mountain ridge

The story of the Piekenierskloof winery begins in 1923 when South African Johan Abraham Van Zyl found himself settling in the undeveloped and ragged mountain ridge of the Piekenierskloof. Soon Johan began to plant vines along the mountain ridge and as they grew and produced grapes, the need for a winery became evident. In 1957 the first winery was established, and it was called the Citrusdal Winery. A few years later, Johans son took an interest in the wine making process and began planting Chenin Blanc and Muscat vines nearby to his fathers’ vineyards.

One of the tope wine regions ins South Africa

Over time and with several developments the name of the winery was eventually changed to Piekenierskloof Wines.The Swartland Region where the Piekenierskloof is located is one of the top wines growing regions of the Western Cape of South Africa. This is because its perfect location where is receives the cool breeze of the Atlantic as well as long, dry and hot summers. The wines of Piekenierskloof are divided into four ranges: The Old Vine Range, the Piekenierskloof Range, the Stonedance Range and the Six Hats Range.

The Old Vine range wines are produced from grapes harvest from the oldest bush vines planted in 1962, making them over 50 years old
