In the Boland, amongst the endangered fynbos and several species of proteas, you’ll find a small 24ha boutique winery called Druk My Niet. This is where we make wine the environmentally friendly way.

Our winery is situated in a biosphere reserve and we choose to use only sustainable farming methods. We’re a proud member of the Biodiversity Initiative.

Over the years our wine cellar has grown to an 80 tonne boutique winery with state of the art machinery and equipment. 

Our boutique wines are allowed to mature at their own pace and our self-catering cottages are there for you to relax and unwind.


Originally part of Kleinbosch Farm granted to hugenot Francois du Toit in 1692, Druk My Niet came to be when Petrus Jacobus Malherbe purchased a portion of land in 1818 from his father-in-law, who was the owner at the time.  In 2002 the Kirchners bought the farm and began a six year period of renovation and replanting of the estate together with Malherbe Rust Architects and Future Growth Landscapers. This renovation returned some of the oldest buildings in the Paarl Valley to their former glory.

The old shed, which dates back to 1692, was converted into a modern 100 tonne cellar furnished with state of the art equipment. Two historical open fermenters were restored and the installation of new steel tanks followed shortly after.  In 2008 the first wine, Mapoggo White, was produced on the farm with Mapoggo Red to follow in 2009. We focus on the production of red varieties that are suited to warm climates along with Chenin blanc.

The People

Our farm’s owners, Mr and Mrs Kirchner, originally lived in Germany. After having travelled all over the world they finally found their home at Druk My Niet. They have been living on the farm since 2007. 

In August 2016 Alexandra Mcfarlane was appointed as the new wine maker. She will continue with the Druk My Niet philosophy and style of wine making that we are known and loved for.
