Cool climate – cool wines

350 metres above sea level and a stone’s throw distance from it. That makes Elgin South Africa’s coolest climate wine region where the grapes takes longer to ripen on the vines.

Wine tastings

Make a day – or a weekend – of it and visit the beautiful Elgin Valley (a mere 70km east of Cape Town) to taste excellent wines. Refer to each wine farm's info for wine tasting times.
