High up on the northern slopes of the mountains surrounding Robertson in the fertile McGregor valley lays Lord’s Wines cradled amidst fynbos and Proteas. At 500m above sea level, the vineyards are the highest in the Robertson valley enjoying a climate which is cooler than most and making it suitable for producing Pinot Noir and our other award winning wines from specially selected cultivars.
Follow the road to nowhere from the village of McGregor to come and experience the home of Lord’s Wines.
Jacie Oosthuizen, whose family has farmed fruit, vegetables and export Proteas, attracted a few passionate wine lovers to invest in a dream of owning a cellar thar produces iconic, world class wines. This marked the establishment of Lord’s Wines 2003.
The wine farm of 33ha is part of the original Oosthuizen farmland and the name “Lord’s” is a result of Jacie’s devotion to the game of cricket and its home – Lord’s Home of Cricket – in North West London. The cellar, which holds all the modern equipment to produce world class wines, was built in time to receive the maiden harvest in 2006 and bears testament to the involvement and energy of Lord’s shareholders. The market reaction was positive and the maiden Pinot Noir was soon sold out.
Lord's Wines also hosts Saturday cheese platter and wine events with cellar tours. Contact them for upcoming dates!
