The beautiful Elgin Valley is a high inland plateau, completely surrounded by mountains. Just 70km from Cape Town, South Africa, it is rapidly gaining a reputation for the production of premium quality wines. The Elgin Valley is the home of Elgin Vintners, publishers of fine wines and a close knit partnership of six dedicated grape growers from the region.
Elgin Vintner's single biggest advantage is the biodiversity of their vineyards which is spread over a radius of 12 km with an unrivalled spectrum of terroir, fertile soils, aspects, altitudes and meso-climates. Aided by the cool Elgin Valley climate, Elgin Vintners strives for vineyards with a perfect balance and an ideal crop load-to-leaf ratio, yielding grapes that reach physiological and phenolic ripeness simultaneously. It is the blend of these essential elements that contributes to the fine quality of the wines from this region.
Through careful selection of the grapes from a variety of unique vineyards, Elgin Vintners is able to maximise the complexity and character for each individual wine.
