Iona Wines

Remote, isolated and cold. There is a unique phenomenon that happens at Iona. It's a combination of the short distance from the freezing Atlantic Ocean and the rapid increase in altitude that causes the prevailing South East Wind to roll across the property and down into the Elgin Valley, forming misty clouds that blanket the farm on warm days. This protects the grapes from the African sun allowing slow, even, optimum ripeness. Fanatical attention to the finest detail in the vineyards and careful consideration in the cellar results in wines that truly express the uniqueness of this incredibly place.

"We are custodians of a special piece of land, caring for it and the people that work it," says Andrew Gunn.
