Vineyard Info

Our Linton Park wines are made from vineyards that are called De Slange Rivier (Serpent river) that were founded by French Huguenot Louis Fourie in 1699, land granted by Cape Governor Adriaan Van Der Stel. 84 Hectares under vine nestling on the high slopes of the Groenberg Mountain, Wellington District with sweeping views across to Table Mountain. The area benefits from a cool breeze micro-climate, allowing for slow ripening.

The Cabernet Sauvignon vines average 20 years old and thrive on the decomposed high mineral granite Oakleaf with sub–dominant Grenrosa and Tukulu soil formations on the mountain. The blocks are carefully manipulated for high concentrated flavour with low yields. Controlled irrigation and 7 strand hedge system with moveable foliage wires. The high trellis system ensures perfect vertical shoot positioning. Hand harvest in February at dawn to keep grapes cool for vinification.
