Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development Minister, Thoko Didiza, has welcomed the opening of a 100% black-owned winery - Klein Goederust.

In a statement, the Department said the 116-year-old Klein Goederust, which was solely acquired from the savings of many years by the son of a farm labourer, is the first and only 100% black-owned wine farm in Franschhoek.

“The opening of a wine tasting room and restaurant at Klein Goederust farm is testimony to government’s efforts of ensuring equitable access and participation of black people in the wine value chain and the wine industry,” said Didiza in a statement. The Klein Goedrust wine tasting room and restaurant official opens its doors on 3 December 2021.
