Lomond is situated on The Agulhas Plain near the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas – the meeting place of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans – 8km from the fishing village of Gansbaai and within sight of the sea.
The vineyards were planted only on previously cultivated land within sight of the ocean. This maritime climate with the resulting cooling sea breezes ensures that the vineyards are kept cool, which results in late ripening intense fruit.
On the slopes of the Ben Lomond mountain in the Uilenkraal Valley, Lomond vineyards are planted on as many as 18 different soil types, which appear naturally in small pockets along the slopes and produce intriguingly complex wines with flavour profiles that differ markedly from one block to the next.
This unique combination of geography, geology and climate results in terroir that is perfect for producing world-class wine.
The Cape Augulhas appellation has its place among the world’s top winegrowing regions.
