South African Terroir

Many of the wine-producing areas in the Cape are shaped by the powerful forces of the two vast oceans that converge at the southernmost point of Africa: the Atlantic and the Indian oceans. The convergence of these oceans, along with favorable maritime elements such as consistent coastal fog and refreshing sea breezes, complemented by a moderate Mediterranean climate, distinctive topography, and diverse soils, collectively provide the perfect environment for crafting wines with distinct character and complexity.

Old Vine Project

Wines that are made from old vines (vines that are 35 years and older) are a tribute to the grower’s love of the land. They exist because of the people who touched and tended them over many years. They reflect the terroir, landscape, and people who lovingly tend these vineyards across the Cape.
