This historic estate in South Africa’s Elgin Valley is more than just a winery. Founded in 1898 the farm is still family run and takes its name from the founders’ love of oak trees, 4,000 of which are still planted on the estate today.
Among the vines are apple and pear orchards, greenhouses packed with fresh cut flowers, cattle, free range acorn fed pigs and 30km of mountain biking trails. Forty-eight hectares of vineyards are planted predominately with Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay the last of which won regional trophy at the Decanter World Wine Awards last year.
