Paul Cluver Wines

Paul Clüver Family Wines has become a landmark on Wines2Whales, annually welcoming MTB’s who delight in playing on the challenging routes through the farm’s mountainous fynbos, across the famous bridges like Poffadder, Rietvlei magic and Witklippies, alongside the vineyards responsible for the award-winning ranges of Paul Clüver wines. The MTB connection runs close to home as both managing director Paul Clüver Jnr and cellarmaster Andries Burger are keen mountain-bikers, frequently participated in W2W.  They are almost as passionate about this unique race as they are about Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the two grape varieties Paul Clüver pioneered in the Elgin region and from which world class renditions of these noble wines are made today. Situated on the slopes of the Groenlandberg, cyclists can expect to ride through spectacular scenery with the scent of fynbos and the cool breezes ensuring that however taxing, the effort is off-set by some sensorial delights.
