Lomond is situated on The Agulhas Plain near the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas – the meeting place of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans – 8km from the fishing village of Gansbaai and within sight of the sea.The vineyards were planted only on previously cultivated land within sight of the ocean. This maritime climate with the resulting cooling sea breezes ensures that the vineyards are kept cool which results in late ripening intense fruit.
On the slopes of the Ben Lomond mountain in the Uilenkraal Valley, our vineyards are planted on as many as 18 different soil types, which appear naturally in small pockets along the slopes and produce intriguingly complex wines with flavour profiles that differ markedly from one block to the next.This unique combination of geography, geology and climate results in terroir that is perfect for producing world-class wine.The Cape Augulhas appellation has its place among the world’s top winegrowing regions, and one about which we are incredibly passionate.
Discover the legendary ‘Cape of Storms’. Stand at the Southernmost tip of Africa, where two oceans meet. Explore the historic Cape Agulhas lighthouse. Marvel at the shipwrecks that dot this rugged, beautiful coastline. Visit the fishing village of Gansbaai and the memorial to the mariners who lost their lives when the Birkenhead went down off of the Birkenhead lighthouse, whose courage inspired the tradition of women and children first. Curl up in front of a cosy fire with the sound of the crashing waves in the background. Meander through the surrounding Overberg farms and quaint towns that tell stories of yesteryear. Sooth your soul.
