Longridge Wine Estate

At Longridge we honour the age old organic traditions by looking down into the earth, making sure there are no harmful chemicals or toxins in the ancient decomposed granite soils, or in the fresh mountain waters running down in cool underground aquafers from the Helderberg slopes that gently envelope us, securing us with the majestic Helderberg Mountain as our backdrop, from too much wind. The cool Maritime breezes from the Atlantic ocean drifts in as morning mist, ensuring our vineyards are enveloped in a cool blanket to protect them from the heat of the day.

Our holistic methods to winemaking allow us to work alongside nature and not against her. We have ducks and Nguni cattle, owl houses and natural prey living freely on the wine estate, all contributing to our organic and biodynamic methods to terroir driven winemaking.
