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.

Our Chardonnay vines thrive on the decomposed high mineral soil types, Oakleaf with dark brown coloured porous subsoil is dominant together with Tukulu and Dundee soil formations on the mountain. The necessary irrigation is done on a few blocks due to the magnificent soil types and a 7 wire hedge trellis system keep these delicate foliage of the vines in place. Hand selected from the best specific blocks at dawn to keep grapes cool for vinification. Some of the Chardonnay vines are grown at the highest and coolest area giving optimum flavour characteristics.
