Rogge Cloof Wines
Rogge Cloof aims to provide tourists and guests with unique wines reflecting the magic and tastes of the Roggeveld.
The microclimate of this terroir is characterized by low humidity, with dry winds, clear skies and high light intensity.
Insecticides, or pesticides are not used, because typical vineyard diseases are not present. This is due to the remoteness of the vineyard and the cold winter temperatures.
The cold might be a blessing in terms of diseases, but it also poses very real challenges. Black frost in spring is very dangerous for the young shoots when they are at their most vulnerable and the growth season in Sutherland is later than expected in sunny South Africa and is also much shorter.
