PIEKENIERSKLOOF RANGE



Our roots run deep

Shaped by history

Our story starts with our past. As an ever-expanding colony, the Dutch deployed their Piekeniers soldiers along the rocky kloof range, ensuring safe pass for all travelers. In light of a new era for South Africa, the Piekeniers no longer need to be guarded, and so we decided to disarm their 8 military poses, placing their efforts into more fruitful actions. The result is one wine with eight different labels – together, telling our story.
