Elgin Valley Wine Guild
The Elgin Valley is uniquely bountiful. Within its brief wine history, its elegant wines have won a disproportionately large clutch of coveted local and international awards, not to mention critical acclaim. The reasons being: the purposeful drive and passion of the family-owned vineyards that occupy the rolling valley floor, and nature’s generosity.
The Elgin Valley is one the world’s ideal wine-growing regions for many reasons:
A unique confluence of diverse micro-climates with close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Cooling cloud cover and high altitude. Cold winters and adequate rainfall with complex, ancient soils. Grapes in Elgin take longer to ripen on the vines. This means low pH, good natural acidity and perfectly balanced ripe flavours. That’s why the awards. And why the Valley’s unique trademark is classic wines, with elegance, structure and excellent ageing potential.
