During this tough Harvest season and serious drought in big parts of South Africa, we pray for every agricultural farmer, who does not have the luxury of a secured salary at the end of the month but depends on times these!!

The silver lining though....... lovely concentrated wines.... but at what price? ....Workers losing their jobs? So next time if you pay R 10 more for a bottle of wine, enjoy your contribution even more!!!!

Welcome to AnnexKloof!!

Tons of Swartland sons……

Hugo, Thys and Tobie with there late Father, Toeloe Basson

Annex Kloof Wines is a family project situated in the granite slopes of the beautiful Paardeberg in the Swartland, South Africa on the R45 between Malmesbury and Paarl. The name Annex Kloof has the beautiful and very descriptive meaning of “where the gorges meet”

When winemaker, Hugo Basson, is not busy making wine, you will find him in the vineyards alongside brothers Thys and Tobie.  Today these three brothers and business associates have 7 sons to follow in their footsteps, but it all started four generations back in 1906, with grandfather Matthys.  

In 2005, Hugo who inherited his grandfather’s wine making talent, started making his own wine, building his success with fruity and elegant Red Wines and beautiful Swartland Chenin Blanc.  Hugo fell in love with Malbec, after a visit to Argentina in 1991.  This was the beginning of a love affair and great success for this Swartland Farmer.

Hugo’s philosophy is “elegant, yet Powerful”

” I believe that oak should be like a women’s make-up..Subtle and soft…supporting the real beauty without killing the character!”



Annex Kloof is situated approximately 82km from Cape Town on the R45 between Malmesbury and Paarl
