South Africa - Highlands Road Wine Estate
Highlands Road has been producing wine since 2007, after Michael White turned an ageing apple farm into a dynamic wine enterprise. The desirable Elgin terroir is very suited to producing good quality Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz, just to name a few. This is exactly where the focus is at Highlands Road where the wine production is steered to highlight the splendid characteristics of these varieties, while also allowing each vintage to showcase a little individuality that hints at it’s birthdate. The Highlands Road range has been generously awarded by the South African Wine Industry competitions and by the International Wine and Spirits Competition. All farm activities and wine production is performed by Vanessa Mead and her small team, Jacob September and Freddy Gertse. Apart from producing the premium quality wines, respecting and caring for the environment, the people who work on the farm and the community are priorities on Highlands Road Estate. Visitors are welcome 7 days a week, where they can taste the latest releases, stock up on fine wines and enjoy a delectable cheese and charcuterie platter in a most scenic environment.
