Klein Roosboom is one of the lesser known attractions on the popular Durbanville wine route. But to those in the know, it’s more charming with its unique themed tasting rooms created from old winemaking kuipe or open concrete tanks.
Durbanville is known for being cool because of the breezes which blow inland off Table Bay. That and the good soils make Klein Roosboom suited to grape cultivation as well as the making of specialist sparkling wines.
Newly released is a flagship range, the culmination of a long-held dream for Karin De Villiers. The Brut and Brut Rosé bubblies appear under the My Way label from Klein Roosboom.
“Our wines have traditionally been named after family members,” De Villiers said. “The My Way range was, however, named in tribute to my father, who loved that song made famous by Frank Sinatra. To us, we like to think of it as making wine our way, for wine lovers to enjoy their way.”
The 2019 Brut was awarded 4 stars in the 2023 Platter wine guide while the same vintage of Brut Rosé got 4½ stars.
