Marion and Brian Smith sold their IT business in the UK, and after scouring the wine regions of Europe for the perfect place to buy a property, finding it here in Elgin.

Their small farm is planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir… and some apples.

Their intention is to keep things small and focused at Elgin Ridge, using no chemicals and letting the ducks (which they hatch on the farm) play a prominent role in pest control.

Organic certification has been acquired making Elgin Ridge 282 Sauvignon Blanc an organic wine.

The Elgin Valley is one the South Africa‘s ideal wine-growing regions for many reasons: A unique confluence of diverse micro-climates with close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, cooling cloud cover and high altitude with cold winters and adequate rainfall & complex, ancient soils.

Grapes in Elgin take longer to ripen on the vines, which means low pH, good natural acidity and perfectly balanced ripe flavours. Elgin are in conversion to biodynamic viticulture so Marion‘s ducks will have some cows for company.

The grapes for Elgin Ridge 282 Sauvignon Blanc come from vines planted at an altitude of 282 metres above sea level, hence the name, and displaying clean flavours with a hint of minerality.

Thanks to the excellent quality of the juice, the grapes were naturally fermented without any inoculation of commercial yeasts – this preserves natural flavours, aromas and authenticity.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2019

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.
