Proud to be part of the AWT Festival
Explore Africa’s southernmost corner
and discover the unique wines of the Agulhas Wine Triangle
This year the Agulhas Wine Triangle Festival takes place on Saturday, 30th of October, at Lomond wine farm.
Experience the finest wines, meet the winemakers and discover rare and undiscovered treasures, while having a relaxing day on a beautiful wine farm in a unique wine region. The Agulhas Wine Triangle Festival is a festival for every wine lover, from novice to sommelier – an event not to be missed.
The Agulhas Wine Triangle Festival showcases 8 of the region’s wine brands: Black Oystercatcher Wines, The Giant Periwinkle, Ghost Corner, Land’s End and Strandveld Vineyards from the Elim wine ward, Sijnn Wines from Malgas, Lomond Wines from Cape Agulhas and Bruce Jack Wines from Napier.
South Africa’s youngest wine region is characterised by extreme vineyards planted in the southern, most ancient soils in the world. The wines are influenced by their proximity to the wild, cold oceans and tempering, cooling winds.
“With change always our constant companion, our wine industry moves resiliently forward, refusing to be dismantled and undermined… adapting to all challenges – from difficult-to-defend government bans on wine that destroy livelihoods to climate change. If you want to know where this spirit is most alive, come and meet the pioneers and wine adventurers who call the Agulhas Wine Triangle home.” – Bruce Jack, AWT Chair and Bruce Jack Wines owner.
The pioneering winegrowers of the Agulhas Wine Triangle share a spirit for exploration and adventure. They are known for championing elegant, site-driven wines, with concentrated fruit flavours. Already recognised by wine journalists for crafting some of the longest-lived dry white wines in the world with a distinctive salinity and incredible palate weight, it is now the boisterously expressive red wines that are also walking away with top awards in local and international wine competitions.
