The vineyard is located in Breedekloof, a viticultural area to the west of the Breede River Valley, in the Western Cape of South Africa. The grapes are grown in unique sites from older vines which have an average age of 37 years. The nearby Slanghoek Mountains have a moderating effect on the climate in Breedekloof. Afternoon shadows from the mountains shorten the hot days in the region and bring considerably colder evenings. This diurnal temperature variation allows the grapes to cool down during the evening, thus retaining their fresh acidity to balance the ripe, fruit flavours. The vines are grown by a passionate grower who shares the Olifantsberg philosophy and cultivates the vines using sustainable viticulture.

Olifantsberg is passionate about producing authentic wines with a true sense of place, which reflect the unique location of their vineyard. The focus is on sustainable farming and winemaking practices, resulting in limited intervention in the both the vineyard and cellar. They hold the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) certification for sustainability. The team are fully committed to understanding their terroir and managing their natural resources through conservation, which adds to the singularity of their wines. The unique terroir with its combination of Breede-shale, Renosterveld and sandstone soils, constant winds and elevation, produces concentrated fruit that winemaker Elizma Visser translates into elegant, fresh and age-worthy wines. In Tim Atkin’s 2021 South Africa Report, Elizma was awarded the prestigious Young Winemaker of the Year Award.
