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.

We'll soon start with the #pruning of our vines!
.
Taurai, our farm manager, has begun pruning the very tops of the vines while watching our new lambs enjoying the sunshine this week.

New additions on the farm! Ten beautiful bouncy #lambs were born on #ElginRidge last week, but we've been keeping them cosy inside while it has been so cold and wet 🐑
.
Yesterday, they bounded out into the #vineyards with their moms to soak up the winter sunshine - and start learning the art of "cover crop management"!

Our newest #CabernetFranc vineyard - as our winemaker Kosie puts it... "any vineyard Instagram post's dream"!

Elgin's version of "snow" this morning - it began hailing around 01h00 and we woke up to a winter wonderland of ice! ❄️

Not your average Thursday... what fun we had with @african.wine.life, @luddite_wines and @maanschijnwijn yesterday!
.
Same time next week, guys and gals?!

Couldn’t think of a better way to spend a rainy day: Lunch next to the fireplace at @luddite_wines with @african.wine.life!

Winter mornings in #Elgin bring all the magic! #ElginMagic #CapeWinelands

Thank you to @with_wine_ for this beautifully designed image of our #ChaosWhite!
