About the winery:
Oak Valley Estate is a dynamic family farm on the northern side of the Elgin Mountain basin, producing premium wine. Elgin is statistically the coolest region in South Africa, which enables the grapes to ripen slowly, enhancing flavour development. 30 hectares are currently planted with vines. Elegance is king!
