TO NIEL JOUBERT WINES
Klein Simonsvlei, the home of Niel Joubert Wines lies on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountain, on the outskirts of Paarl in the Western Cape winelands. A large wine and fruit farm it has spectacular scenery, which includes five hills and ten dams fed from a natural mountain spring.
There is abundant water and enough land diversity to accommodate the successful growing of apples, pears, peaches, plums, naartjies, lemons and blueberries, in addition to grapes. It has been owned since 1898 by the Joubert family, horticulturalists and grape growers by training, and is still run hands-on by individual family members, now in the 5th generation.
Such was their commitment to quality production, as well as the pride in their achievements, that the wine range was renamed Niel Joubert wines in 1994, in honour of 3rd generation patriarch, father of current owner/general manager Daan.
