Cab Cult 2012
How would it be if a wine left the winery exactly as Mother Nature intended? No made-up coffee flavours. No stories about the grapes being crushed between the thighs of a red-haired virgin
Cloof 40 Days 2009
Ancient chenin blanc vines are a national treasure. This barrel-aged natural sweet Chenin Blanc has a soft peach aroma on the nose with a hint of lime
Cloof Merlot 2011
First time ever that Cloof has produced a 100% Merlot in its range. The unique style and quality of Cloof Wine is directly attributed to the fruit produced by the vineyards.
Cloof Lynchin 2010
The critical component – the lynchpin – in this blend is Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which gives the wine its lip-smacking, appetite-inducing freshness.
Ruby Darling 2013
The Ruby Darling was harvested from Cloof's acclaimed low-yield bush vines. With loads of spice, the Ruby Darling is still light enough for every day drinking..
Rose Darling 2013
Rosy Darling (Daisy’s baby sister) is a wine that goes through every day with a beaming smile. This Pinotage rose is really easy to drink and the most charming of company...

Welcome to Darling's greatest and undiscovered secret
 

The West Coast Village of Darling is home to artists, actors, retired financiers, farmers and other interesting people (we would count ourselves amongst those). Even if the region geographically (not to mention demographically) is slightly off the beaten track, Darling’s annual wild flower show – showcasing a selection of the 1200 flowering species to be found here – makes it the focal point of the Cape Floral Kingdom.

Cloof’s oldest surviving vines were planted in 1966, with additional plantings in 1976 and 1987. In that time Darling, adjacent to the Swartland, was better known as a wheat farming region. A cellar was completed in time for the 1998 harvest, which allowed the first release of Cloof wines during the course of 1999. Vineyard area was significantly increased, with plantings every year from 1998 to 2000, bringing the total to 145 hectares of which the majority is Bush Vines. The 220 hectares of vineyards at neighbouring Burghers Post are under the same ownership, giving us unparalleled access to (and control over) top quality fruit.

In 2003 Darling was declared a wine region in it’s own right in recognition of the unique style and quality of wines grown here.

Our passion for bold, well-defined flavours is expressed also in various food events at Cloof. Celebrating the best of country produce and simplicity in preparation, we see our wines as being the ideal complement to our slow food philosophy. Afrikaans has a word, “gesellig” which best describes the happy mood that settles on a group when hospitality, good company, wine and food are brought together.

Anyone living near a town called Darling must be under suspicion of some degree of eccentricity. Whilst we haven’t (yet) started talking to our vines, we take the view that each wine is unique, and that each one’s personality should be communicated in its packaging.

What’s happening in the cellar? 

July and August are traditionally the months where we are busy with removing the former vintages out of the barrels and transferring the new vintage into barrels. However this year we are a bit delayed, due to some special projects coming our way.
