Our Story

Slowine is a joint project between wine-producers from around our Groenland Mountain. The partners are Paul Cluver, well-known for their elegant, cool-climate Elgin wines; Beaumont in Bot River, with its charismatic cellar and proud tradition of making site-expressive wines; Luddite, the boutique Shiraz-specialist on the superbly scenic Van der Stel Pass road; and Villiersdorp Cellars, a truly traditional co-operative with a warm heart and welcoming wines.

In other words, Slowine embraces all corners and the people of the mountain and there is a good reason why these neighbours got together - the mountain has recently been proclaimed the first Wine and Biodiversity Route in the world, called the Green Mountain Eco-Route.

The new Slowines take the tortoise as their emblem, he's a symbol that fast is not always better - as in the parable of the tortoise and the hare. The tortoise is living proof that you will get to the finishing line ? and have a good journey ? if you move steadily and at your own pace. For this reason, Slowine has the Padlopertjie as its mascot. He reminds us to take our time.

These wines are a welcome antidote to the stresses and strains of modern living, so don't let life rush by - pour a glass of Slowine and stop time awhile!
