Lothian Vineyards is a family vineyard on the Palmiet River in Elgin, South Africa, producing Burgundian style wines like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The area is well worth the hour-and-a-bit drive required to get there from Cape Town, the wines and food are outstanding and it’s something a little different from the usual fare of the traditional tourist wine routes. For starters, the estate has been established incorporating its own private lake. This is a place where natural beauty is merely a glance away, with sightings of rare Cape Leopard, African Fish Eagle, Cape Clawless Otter and Cape Eagle Owl.
Indulge in the luxury wine tasting experience, or, for the more adventurous, go horseback riding or fishing (there are even jet-skis and a boat to take for a spin).
With plenty to enjoy, under amazing African skies, Lothian Vineyards is an absolute pleasure to experience.
