DE KLEINE WIJN KOÖP
Based in Paarl
De Kleine Wijn Koöp is head up by winemaker Wynand Grobler and his wife, Anya. The Groblers regard the 'cooperative' as a two-man family business and run the business from a small cellar with a dedicated team in the heart of Paarl. Wynand does not care much about corporate structures or large cellar teams — his main goal is to be personally involved in the winemaking process. He produces only small quantities of wine with prestigious grapes, and some mysterious vineyards from Stellenbosch, Swartland, Walker Bay, Franschhoek, Piekenierskloof and Paarl.
Elephants Corner is proudly the Flagship importer of De Kleine Wijn Koop for the United States.
MONT ROCHELLE WINERY
Based in Franschhoek
At Mont Rochelle, we cultivate and nurture various grape varieties including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon amongst a few others that are used for blending purposes to add complexity. The vineyards are situated between 250m and 400m above sea level exposing the grapes to a range of micro climates. Mediterranean-like conditions found in the Western Cape means dry summers and high winter rainfalls of 1000mm. The Franschhoek Valley also experiences the south-easter which helps bring in cooler air allowing for a longer ripening period.
Based in Stellenbosch
