Ormonde Wine Estate – a Winery in the Rolling Hills of Darling

The Ormonde Wine Estate is located on the western coast of South Africa among the rolling hills of Darling. There are molten rocks that cover the Atlantic Ocean, and as the fog rolls to the base of the hills the perfect moisture and coolness for the vineyards settle in. The Cape Floral Kingdom has the richest plant species in the world and has almost 600 unique species flowering every year. Their wines are rich in quality and represent the qualities and features of their region.

The winemakers at Ormonde Wine Estate try to make wines with minimal intervention to preserve the natural taste and aroma of their grapes.

The History and Vineyard Plantings at Ormonde Wine Estate

The Bassan Family currently owns the winery, the grandfather of the owner, Vernon Basson, bought the farm in 1970. His son, Nico, planted vineyards with great determination and hard work, helping to make the region is one of the best wine-producing areas in the country.

Winery with a Wonderful Selection of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Grenache, Pinot Noir, and Malbec

The main varieties of grapes that grow in their vineyards are Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Grenache, Pinot Noir, Malbec, Pinotage, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The best grapes are handpicked and used to make their world-class red, white, and dessert wines. The winemakers try to make wines with minimum intervention to preserve the natural taste and aroma.
