Gabriëlskloof is a family owned and run wine estate with sweeping views of the Babilonstoren Mountains and the surrounding wheat fields. The farm and vineyards were established in 2000, with their first vintage in 2009.
It has 70 hectares under vine and 50 hectares set aside for conservation, mostly consisting of Overberg Sandstone Fynbos and some critically endangered Western Ruens Shale Renosterveld. They have rehabilitated the fynbos in the area below the winemaker’s house by collecting fynbos seeds over a period of time and then scattering them across the slope. A variety of birdlife has returned to the farm to delight birdwatchers young and old.
