Kleine Zalze is a family owned winery situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Winemaking has taken place there on a small scale since 1695 but it was in 1996, when Kobus Basson and his family purchased the property, that the modern Kleine Zalze was born. In 1996 the estate's soils were scientifically mapped, evaluated and replanted according to their specific terroir characteristics and potential. Continuous investment over the last 17 years has seen the winery evolve into one of the most awarded in Stellenbosch.
The estate places great emphasis on terroir and the influence it has on grapes and flavouring. Kleine Zalze has three tiers of wine, ranging from the flagship Family Reserve range, to the Vineyard Selection and the Cellar Selection.
Kleine Zalze wines all have a distinctive character driven flavour influenced by the farm's extensive soil analysis and three distinct terroir areas.
