"Passionate" is the word to describe Marion and Brian Smith, the owners of Elgin Ridge. Ideally situated high on the slopes of Grabouw (with the cool effects of both altitude and ocean proximity), the wines produced at Elgin Ridge are aimed to reflect the Elgin terroir. While the range is only composed now of an elegant Chardonnay (only slightly wooded) and Sauvignon Blanc, we shall see quickly some other cultivars (Pinot Noir) and a bubbly (MCC) at the request of Marion. The wine tasting lounge is simple, but functionnal, offering a direct view on the cellar. But the best thing here is to sit down and enjoy talking with the owners about wine, food, travel... This is life!
Did You Know...? The Elgin Ridge range is called 282, the height of their vines: 282 meters about sea-level.
