The rich soil of the Swartland has certainly been good to the Kloovenburg estate. Producing quality olive oil, olive products and wine, this estate is owned and managed by husband-and-wife team Pieter and Annalene du Toit. Pieter du Toit (Snr) purchased the estate in 1958 and set about expanding and improving the vineyards, only introducing olive orchards to the estate 16 years ago.
