in the vineyard : About the area
South Africa's vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape near the coast. This is the southernmost region of the African continent, and has a Mediterranean type climate and diverse soils perfectly suited to quality grape production.

Vintage conditions
The 2010 harvest will be remembered for its erratic weather changes, which posed several challenges to winemakers and viticulturist alike. A cold, but late 2009 winter pre- ceded the growing season providing much needed rest to the vineyards. Budding was earlier than expected, which resulted in an early start to the 2010 harvest. Above average rainfall was recorded during the growing season, resulting in increased disease pressure and lower vineyard yields. Up until the end of February, the harvest season was characterised by mild weather which created favourable conditions for slow ripening and the development of berry flavours. Grape quality in general was very good, promising a range of excellent wines from the 2010 vintage.
