About

The Company

The farm, Dassieklip, was originally a grain and sheep farm and in 2002 the Droogerivier Dohnes stud was established, soon followed by the registration of the Droogerivier Brangus stud in 2008.

After completing his studies in 2005, Jan-Hendrik Joubert,Jr. returned to the family farm. Soon after his arrival he recognised the farm’s infinite potential for the cultivation of olives and wine grapes. Contributing factors to this conclusion was the farm’s close proximity to the ocean, the limestone-rich soil and the ideal climate – and it became the final motivation for the development and expansion of the farm.

Jan-Hendrik, Jr. and his father, Fanie, planted the first olive groves in 2008. In 2009 the first blocks of Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Tempranillo was planted, followed by Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in 2010. This is when Baleia Wines were born.

The Products

The farm was chosen for the cultivation of olive oil because of the high-quality calcium-rich soil and the close proximity to the ocean which provides the ideal climate for the growth of the olives.

The general opinion is that olive trees need not much attention, but the Jouberts believe the exact opposite. “The more refined care and attention we put into our olive trees, the better the quality of our end-product.”

“We also farm conscientiously – utilizing organic and biological methods as far as possible to ensure we consider the surrounding environment during any of our farming activities or with any decisions we make.”
The first Baleia olive oil was pressed and bottled in 2012.
