In its opulent setting on the banks of the Palmiet River and a private lake in the Elgin Valley, Elgin House shines in a class of its own. Years of searching for the perfect location finally revealed Elgin’s cool-climate terroir as an elegant setting for growing grapes to produce exceptional Burgundian-style Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Rosé varietals. The Wilson family’s non-interventionist artisanal wine-making technique flows into the feel of the House: a feat of modern architecture, designed with sensitivity towards the environment. Guests at Elgin House are treated to a theatrical show of nature with sightings of rare Cape Leopard, African Fish Eagle, Cape Clawless Otter and Cape Eagle Owl between an array of outdoor experiences. This three-year-long labour of love has resulted in the achievement of award-winning wines and the beguiling lifestyle of an unparalleled countryside retreat.
