Nestled in a secluded area, near the Kokelberg Nature reserve, and offering dramatic views from their 420m above sea-level position, Iona is an amazing winery. The cool climate, both from the height and the proximity of the ocean, allows Iona to propose superb wines that are a true expression of the Elgin terroir. The new tasting lounge is very pleasant and offers nice modern-art paintings and sculptures and meeting the owner, Andrew Gunn is always a sheer pleasure, a true passionate. One of our favorites wine destination.
Did You Know...? The Gunn family have Vikings ancestors, that landed in Scotland in the 900's, hence the emblem on their wines. No legend there, just shake hands with Andrew...Yes, he has Viking ancestors :-)
