More about Wines of Elgin

Elgin, declared a wine ward in 1990, stands as one of the Cape's newer appellations. Nestled inland, 70 kilometers east of Cape Town, its landscape, enclosed by mountains and perched between 250 to 500 meters above sea level, uniquely shapes the region's viticulture. Situated within the esteemed Kogelberg Biosphere, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Elgin's vineyards thrive amidst a dedication to sustainable practices, championing Biodiversity Wine Initiative (BWI) Champions and embracing principles aligned with the Integrated Production of Wine system (IPW).

The diverse terrain, from towering peaks to gentle hills, fosters an ideal environment for nurturing exceptional wines, marked by a profound commitment to eco-friendly viticulture, including minimal intervention and water conservation. Elgin's natural advantages - high altitudes, cold winters with ample rainfall, and refreshing southeasterly sea breezes - coupled with the black South Easter wind, creating unique cloud cover days leading up to and during the harvest period, contribute to a unique microclimate. This natural buffer aids vineyards by regulating temperatures, prolonging ripening, and enhancing flavor complexity.

Characterized by Bokkeveld Shale and Table Mountain Sandstone soils, Elgin's Mediterranean climate, with annual winter rainfall between 800 and 1200 mm, fosters extended grape maturation. Notably, its cooler nights, maintaining temperatures between 18°C and 19.5°C, allow for comprehensive grape development. Renowned for exceptional varietals like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc, Elgin showcases its versatility by successfully cultivating Riesling, Merlot, Syrah, and an array of other varieties across its 721 hectares of vineyards.
