Wolvendrift was bought in 1903 by Michael Klue, great grandfather of Jan Klue, now  the fourth generation of Wolvendrift.  An upcoming market, favourable climatic condition and the availability of water ensured that viticulture became Michaels top priority.  With exceptional insight, Michael’s son Josef , enlarged his father’s existing cellar.  Wine was produced in bulk and sold to wholesalers.  Josef was also a keen racehorse breeder, but when his son Michael took over in 1980, the horses were sold and the land was utilised for vineyards.  Michael’s knowledge and passion for viniculture makes him an excellent winemaker.  His dedication and enthusiasm is shared by his son Jan, who in 2003 joined him on the farm.  Wolvendrift has been in the Klue family for more than 100 years and the love and devotion to the noblest art, that of blending a special wine, has been carried over from father to son for four generations.

Wolvendrift Farm is 200ha in size of which 130ha consist of vineyards (70% white wines and 30% red wines).

Barrydale owes its existence to the vibrant trade that was established with farmers in the region in the late 1800s – and one of these products was brandy.  In 1941, the town’s first “official” brandy was made at the newly established Barrydale Cellar. Read more
