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.
