We Cultivate Pinotage, Chenin and Cabernet
How suitable is our weather and altitude for wine-growing? Our summer months prove to be warm enough for cabernet, chenin, pinotage, and shiraz. And our soil? This alternate between silty sand, clay and loam which is not ideal, but growers with good water resources manage pretty well.
Three years ago the owners at Rehoboth Lodge planted their first vines, visualizing a Boutique Vineyard. Today they have a productive vineyard with cabernet, chenin and pinotage and will be making their first wine during February.
