A demonstration of Elgin’s cool climate serenity.
After establishing Thelema Mountain Vineyards as an iconic Stellenbosch wine estate, Gyles Webb embarked on a new project in the early 2000’s to develop a range of small-scale, cool-climate wines.
After searching the Cape for the perfect site, he discovered a small apple orchard in the Elgin Valley, and Sutherland Vineyards was born.
Sutherland Vineyards is situated just 9 km off the Atlantic Ocean with altitudes of 140 to 250m above sea level. Due to this proximity, ideal cool climate conditions are created. The resulting wines are more balanced with great depth and complexity of flavour.
