Paul Boutinot is the driving force and inspiration for Waterkloof Estate in Somerset West. Viticulture in many facets, sustainable, organic and biodynamic.
Waterkloof Estate, In 2004 this beautiful wine estate was bought by Paul Boutinot. Waterkloof is located on the Schaapenberg in Somerset West, Stellenbosch, just three kilometers from the ocean. The vineyards for the Waterkloof wines are located on the upper slopes of this domain, 300 meters above sea level. They are characterized by their mineral character and elegant style. The domain is fully biodynamic.
After ten years of searching, they believe to have found a unique vineyard site, capable of producing truly fine wines with a real sense of place. It is therefore their aim to grow grapes, which are as healthy, balanced and characterful as their natural circumstances will allow. They believe that this can only be achieved by cultivating on a farm that is truly alive and in tune with its natural environment- from the rocky soil in which the vines grow, right the way through the surrounding eco-system.
