Klein Goederust Wine Estate

This wine estate is the epitome of South African history and is situated in the Franschhoek Valley. Klein Goederust Wine Estate is the first and only 100% black-owned wine estate in the Franschhoek Valley.

Mr Paul Siguqa (son of a former Cape Winelands farm worker Nomaroma Siguqa) bought Klein Goederust in 2019. This 10 hectare farm is steeped in history. Paul kept the original name of the farm (dating back to 1905) and integrated his isiXhosa identity by incorporating the Southern Ground Hornbill, the clan/family crest totem into the logo. Paul ensured that the farm went through a meticulous restoration while preserving the timeless charm but also introducing contemporary, minimalist design elements.

Klein Goederust has a historic cellar which was also constructed in 1905 which showcases an array of wines and includes the Nomaroma MCC - named after Nomaroma Siguqa the Siguqa matriarch. The wine collection is inspired with authenticity and deep historical roots. The wine-tasting room 117 years old and dates back to the “dop system” serving as a reminder of the hardships endured by their ancestors.

Important Information


Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot.

Seating

Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.

Weather

All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
