Welcome to Wolfkloof
Boutique Winery & Wedding Venue
The farm Wolfkloof dates back to 1880. Jan Kannemeyer’s grandfather and father purchased Wolfkloof in 1973. The first wine was made in 2004, a Merlot made in a traditional French style.
Wolfkloof is a Boutique Winery, meaning that the wines are handcrafted, small amounts, with as little mechanical interference as possible, therefore naturally made “Single Vineyard Wine”. The 0.8 hectares Merlot block (east-west slope direction) is registered by the South African Wine Institute (SAWIS), so that only Merlot from this unique terroir maybe used for making “Child’s Dream Merlot”.
The Merlot’s name was inspired by the young Frederick Kannemeyer, aged 7, who took a bottle, filled it up with tea , sealed it and labelled the bottle with his own design. When the first Merlot was bottled 5 years later, we realized Frederick’s design was perfect, and named our Merlot “Child’s Dream”.
Currently, Wolfkloof has a range of four wines, namely, Child’s Dream Merlot , Wild yeast Chardonnay a Dry Merlot Rosé and our latest addition The 2013 Kannemeyer Blanc de Blancs Mcc with zero dosage added .
Many years ago, the surname Kannemeyer denoted the “keeper of the cans”, otherwise known as the cellar master of the castle. Today, this tradition is continued with the patient maturation of these handcrafted wines.
