The grapes are grown in the Cape Agulhas wine region, where the sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean create a cool-microclimate. The winds blow directly off the ocean in both a south easterly and south westerly direction, providing consistent freshness throughout the summer and as a result, temperatures seldom reach above 30°C. This cool microclimate creates a slow ripening period, allowing the grapes to build flavour complexity and to produce naturally balanced wines. The diversity of soil types creates wines with great dimension and structure. A triple wire vertical shoot system is used for trellising, which helps to provide optimum sunlight and airflow and protects the vines and shoots against the wind. Nature-friendly chemical sprays are used if necessary along with copper treatments. Satellite technology is used to help determine optimal ripening; the grapes are then hand-harvested during the cool of the early morning.

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.
