Nestled high on the slopes of the Elgin area, this architecturally acclaimed winery and tasting facility offers 2 of the most important factors in a wine tasting experience : Amazing wines and great hospitality. You will want to spend hours listening to Natalie and Joris (the young owners) talk about their wines, while enjoying a superb view of the area. Be prepared for their new Flagship and Family Reserve range! The syrah (some of it bottled in magnum) is superb, while the new released Lace red blend is more than satisfying, with a great price/quality ratio!

Did You Know...? Did I tell you about the view ? And the architecture ? And the Sauvignon blanc ? There is even a boule court...
