We choose to farm in harmony with nature in order to produce wines that excel in quality, flavour and sustainability.
At Waterkloof, we treat our farm as a living entity. Our approach to winemaking is focused on the preservation and nourishment of the soil in which our vines grow, and enhancing the fertility of our soils with entirely natural means. Our methods include the production and use of our own biodynamic preparations, fertilisers and composts, and our farming team boasts Percheron horses, cattle, sheep, hens, rabbits and earthworms as valuable, hard-working members.
This biodynamic approach allows our vines to become self reliant, with stronger shoots, thicker leaves and deeper root systems. The vineyards are naturally balanced and produce smaller grapes with more concentrated flavours.
Our methods also impart a sense of place, with distinctive flavour profiles resulting from the specific terroir. Biodynamic soil is healthy and alive, and its characteristics translate into the unique aromas and flavours that make a wine truly distinctive.
