The original Louisvale vineyard is 13 hectares, planted solely with Chardonnay. In fact, Louisvale was one of the pioneers of Chardonnay in South Africa.

Eighteen months ago the neighbouring 13 hectare property, Nooitgedacht, was purchased. Fortuitously, this land had recently been planted with Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

This red wine vineyard produced its first substantial crop in 2003. Some grapes will still need to be bought in, but in the mid-term it should be possible to produce the core Louisvale range from estate grown fruit. A second label, "Glen Devon" will replace the current "LV" branding. This will be produced from a combination of estate grown and purchased fruit.
