Klein Rijselhoek Estate

Vineyard
Loker

After first planting a trial vineyard, in 2009 Peter Vandamme was able to start as a wine-grower in the Heuvelland BOB
region. His 1-hectare plot is situated at the foot of the Rodeberg on a steep slope. The soil is a mixture of clay, loam
and ironstone, which is ideal for growing vines. He opted for fungus-resistant varieties: Regent, Cabernet Cortis and,
more recently, Souvignier Gris. The vineyard is also home to a kestrel, who lives in a specially adapted nest box.
This useful ‘lodger’ helps to protect the vines against rodents, which damage both the roots and stems of the vines.
Other birds that have an appetite for ripening grapes are also kept at a safe distance. This all goes to make the Klein
Rijselhoek an environmentally-friendly and sustainable vineyard.

Grape varieties: Regent, Cabernet Cortis, Muscaris, Souvignier Gris
