In 1999, Geoff McIver established the Lomond estate, which is situated on the Agulhas Plain near the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas – the confluence of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans- eight kilometres from the fishing village of Gansbaai and within sight of the sea. The estate takes its name from the Ben Lomond Mountain in the Uilenkraal Valley. Award-winning winemaker Hannes Meyer joined the team and skilfully crafts a portfolio of stunning wines from this top winegrowing region, some of which are named after the indigenous flora, known as 'Fynbos'. The vines are planted on as many as 18 different soil types, which appear naturally in small pockets along the slopes and produce intriguingly complex wines, with flavour profiles that differ significantly from one block to the next. The terroir, climate and location of Lomond combine to create superb single-vineyard wines. The vineyard is sustainably cultivated; Lomond is a member of South Africa’s Integrated Production of Wine (IPW), Wine & Agricultural Ethical Trade Association (WIETA) and the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy.
