Kleine Zalze

Winemakers: Alastair Rimmer – Henning Retief – RJ Botha ​The farm was first promulgated in 1685, a time when many of the original wine estates were first laid out.

The farm is known to have produced grapes since at least 1695 when the first record of taxes payable to the Stellenbosch Town Council were made by the then owner of Kleine Zalze, Nicolaas Cleef, a German immigrant.

At this time over 700 vines were recorded for tax purposes. Kobus and Mariette Basson purchased Kleine Zalze in 1996 with Jan Malan, Mariette’s brother. Jan left the business in 2000 and Rolf Schulz, a German National, took up his share of the wine business. Kleine Zalze Lodge and Terroir Restaurant are wholly owned parts of Kleine Zalze..
