Lomond is situated on The Agulhas Plain near the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas – the meeting place of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans – eight km from the fishing village of Gansbaai and within sight of the sea. The vineyards were planted only on previously cultivated land within sight of the ocean. This maritime climate ensures that the vineyards are kept cool by the sea breezes which results in late-ripening, intense fruit.
On the slopes of the Ben Lomond mountain in the Uilenkraal Valley, our vineyards are planted on as many as 18 different soil types. These appear naturally in small pockets along the slopes and produce intriguingly complex wines with flavour profiles that differ markedly from one block to the next. This unique combination of geography, geology and climate results in a terroir that is perfect for producing world-class wine.
The Cape Agulhas appellation has its place among the world’s top winegrowing regions, and is one about which we are incredibly passionate. We invite you to join us at The TastingRoom@Lomond which overlooks the 100 ha Lomond Dam and provides guests with unparalleled views of the farm, vineyards and valley. Food platters are available and include local cheese from Stonehouse, cold meats from Richard Bosman, and trout and pâté from our dam.
