Elgin Cool Wine & Country Food Festival

Join our annual celebration, the #ElginCoolFest, a weekend-long festival at the end of April 2017 for exceptional cool climate wine, delicious country fare and outdoor entertainment. Soak up the last of the summer sunshine as autumn begins to transform the vines with her technicolour paint brush as serious oenophiles and social wine enthusiasts come together to appreciate the natural beauty of the picturesque Elgin Valley, meet the winemakers and discover the distinctive personality of the vineyard.

Elgin Vintners

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.

Main Farm

Oak Valley

Established in 1898 by Sir Antonie Viljoen, this magnificent 1786ha family estate is one of the pioneering farms in the country. In 1908 a cellar was built, but was sadly mothballed during the Second World War when fruit was in greater demand. New vineyards were established in 1985, followed by the release of our much acclaimed maiden vintage in 2003. 

With vineyards located on mountain slopes over 450m above sea level, ripening occurs slowly, vines bear ultra-low tonnages and troops of baboons compete relentlessly for the spoils!
