Within the Elgin Valley, nestled between vineyard rows, orchards of apples and pears with an amphitheatre of the Kogelberg and Hottentots Holland mountain ranges, lies the brand home of Elgin Vintners on the Elgin Orchards farm, dating back to 1890. This historic homestead has been renovated into a Victorian-style home with original oak and hickory floorboards.
Their Ridgelands Manor House, built in 1927 and based on a Sir Herbert Baker design, has been converted into a four-star Boutique Guest House. Garden enthusiasts can enjoy meandering through the English-style garden and faithful hounds are welcome to join too. The swimming pool is open to all visitors to the farm and if you are planning on spending the day with a picnic on the lawn, bringing along tennis rackets or mountain bikes is recommended.
With library shelves safekeeping a private collection of Elgin Vintners vintages, guests can sip on the award winning current releases, either on the sandstone terrace or under the cool shade of ancient oak trees with views of the surrounding mountain ranges and vineyards.
