Baleia Wine Tasting

Visit the Baleia tasting room just outside the picturesque town of Riversdale. Sample a selection of their award-winning wines to tantalise your taste buds.

The farm Dassieklip, home to Baleia vineyards, was selected for the vineyards because of its limestone-rich soil & close proximity to the ocean. Jan-Hendrik, Jr. and his father, Fanie, planted the first olive groves in 2008. In 2009 the first blocks of Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Tempranillo were planted, followed by Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in 2010. This is when Baleia Wines were born.

Overview

Baleia vineyards produce wines of exceptional quality – starting with the careful selection of cultivar clones.

In 2011 a decision was made to focus specifically on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which led to additional planting and development of these cultivars.

They started out as pioneers in the cultivation of vineyards in the district, and remain the only wine-producing farm in our region.
