Situated in the picturesque valley of the Gamka River, on the edge of the sleepy town of Calitzdorp, Die Krans was formally part of a larger property farmed by Chris and Danie Nel, whose grandfather had bought the farm in 1890. The present cellar was built in 1964 and, in 1979, Die Krans was the first farm in the Klein Karoo to be registered as an estateIMG_6075 when they started to bottle their own wines. Boets took overall charge of the farm in 1981, after his father’s passing and today works in close collaboration with his viticulturalist brother, Stroebel and winemaker, Louis van der Riet who arrived on the farm in 2012.
The name was only recently changed from Die Krans to De Krans.
Portuguese varieties were planted in Calitzdorp during the early 1970’s with Tinta Barocca being the first to find its way to the Klein Karoo. The shallow soil and continental climate of Calitzdorp, very similar to that of the Douro valley in Portugal, is ideal for growing these unique varieties. All vines are micro irrigated on VSP trellising systems to ensure the best quality fruit possible.
