Known internationally as the place where apples are grown, the cool Elgin valley lies on the Four Passes Fruit Route, embraced by the Hottentots Holland Mountains, 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town in the Cape Overberg.
The Elgin Valley is exquisite, with long stretches of forest and endless mountain peaks surrounding fruit orchards.
The wines that have begun production here are predominantly fruity. Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Shiraz grapes do particularly well. Elgin is regarded as a cool climate terroir, which means that grapes grown here potentially ripen slowly.
