In the heart of the picturesque Stellenbosch Winelands lies the century-old gem of the Kleine Zalze estate. Bordering the provincial town of Stellenbosch, affectionately known as “Little Europe”, Kleine Zalze provides an escape to a timeless era of Cape Dutch architecture, exquisite wine, fine dining and leisurely days spent with family and friends. The estate offers a variety of attractions, including Kleine Zalze’s award-winning wines, our critically acclaimed gourmet restaurant, breathtaking hiking and cycling routes, the world-renowned De Zalze golf course and our luxurious four-star Cape Dutch style lodge.
Located on a variety of slopes, soils and aspects, the vineyards that bear the fruit for the Kleine Zalze range of wines are exposed to fresh ocean breezes from the coast, which lies a mere 15 kilometers away. This cool climate yields delicate flavors whilst at the same time providing optimal growing and ripening conditions to our fruit. From an environmental perspective, the development of Kleine Zalze and the adjoining De Zalze Golf Estate were subject to a clause that the environmental conditions and the value of the land would have to be enhanced.
