Koopmanskloof is set in the Bottelary Hills in Stellenbosch, with a wine tradition dating back to 1777. We are proud of this heritage, and our wines prove it. Koopmanskloof has been in the hands of the Smit family since 1895.
Late Stevie Smit bought the farm from his father and the farm was expanded and owned by him until his recent demise at the age 82. The farm is currently owned by the WS Smit Family Trust, with production and marketing operations firmly in the hands of Koopmanskloof Wingerde (PTY) Ltd.
Oom Stevie was very passionate about the preservation of our natural vegetation and therefore in 1980 requested the proclamation of a Private Nature Reserve on the 98ha fynbos which was set aside for the preservation of the endangered types of vegetation present on his farm.
