Say hello to the newest member of the Elgin Ridge #biodynamic farming team!
.
We farm with #Dexter cows, a natural miniature breed from Ireland, and they play a vital role in our biodynamic farming practices. This fluffy little one was born during the night on Thursday last week and wasn't even 24 hours when we snapped this photo - already learning about grazing in the vines from proud Mom!

It's spring, which means the birds and the bees (and the ladybugs) are celebrating! 🐞
.
Winemaker Kosie snapped this close-up of #ladybugs mating in the wild #fennel growing on our estate. This little family of bugs (and, more commonly, a species of ladybug called "cryptolaemus") play an important role in natural pest control in the vines and are thus a key part of our #organic and #biodynamic farming practices 🌱

So excited to announce that @elginridgewines Chaos White 2017 has now landed. This blend of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon is part skin contact, part oak aged, part whole bunch and part free run juice. This wine typifies the wave of exciting wines that are coming out of South Africa at the moment. Bravo to @kosie_winederluster and team for this wine which I can’t wait to get out and show the market. 1,000 bottles only hitting these shores. #southafricanwine #elginwine #skincontact #whitebordeauxblend

Happy International #PinotNoir day! 🍷
.
With 87 hectares & 17 @WinesofElgin producers creating their own unique expressions - to a total of 21 Pinot Noirs - we think it's safe to say that the #HeartbreakGrape has found true happiness here in the cool climate #Elgin valley!

Our first In-Store tasting will be with Luddite and Elgin Ridge Wines on the 25th of August. @kosie_winederluster and @ali.in.wonderful.land will be with us showcasing their range of wines. See you there!

"View from the @elginridgewines tasting room. Very informative and personal wine tasting experience. Also one of the friendliest dogs greatest us on arrival and escorted us to the venue."

A fabulous compliment for our team and four-legged hostess Molly - thank you, @jasonhamilton5215!

It's #CoverCrop season! And, when it comes to farming #biodynamically, everything has an important purpose:
.
Our #foragepeas have done us proud this year, with incredibly lush growth. We've ploughed some of the rows to add valuable nitrogen to the soil, and we've left some to produce sweet, tender #peapods - a bit like #mangetout.
.
We've also planted #oats in alternate vineyard rows, from which we'll harvest the seeds (for next year's cover crop planting). The oats will then be turned into bedding for our cows and sheep.
