Our Wines

At De Kloof we like to think that that we have assembled a selection of beverages that are a bit above the average. Why spoil an above average meal with average drinks?  We were the first restaurant in Gauteng to stock craft beers exclusively in 2011. Similarly, our wine list doesn’t list the familiar old names just for the sake of having them. Even our white house wine received 4 stars in Platter’s guide. We’d like our guests to feel at liberty to try something new, knowing that they are getting some of the best quality for the price, anywhere.

Gesondheid and Cheers!
