NJB Wines is short for Nicolaas Johannes Basson, the owner of the estate as well as his late father. The wine is named in remembrance of his father, because he saw potential that few others in the Darling area saw before him – becoming one of the first to plant olive trees and vineyards on the Darling Hills.
There is about 200 Ha of dryland vineyards of which the majority of grapes is sold to other award winning labels.
Today, this legacy is carried forward by his son, a next generation Nicolaas Johannes Basson, who not only shares his father’s name but also his passion for the area, produce and of course family.
Every year we choose the best block of grapes, from which we only produce a small amount of bottles. This year is no exception, we call this year’s Shiraz, Die Ou Melkstal. The building Darling Olives call home is the old milking shed on Alexanderfontein Estate as well as the building Darling Romery started in. Sold exclusively in Darling Olives’ home, this delicious spicy Shiraz pairs perfectly with our Olive Chocolate Salami. Sit back and relax with a glass of our Die Ou Melkstal.
