The captivating history of Linton Park Wine Estate outside Wellington, thus far described by some as the ‘undiscovered gem of the Cape Winelands’, was formally revealed to the media and some VIP guests at a special event held at the estate on Thursday, 23 February 2017.
Linton Park’s legacy started in 1699 as the farm De Slange Rivier. Our original farm was named for the winding stream, Snake River or Slange Rivier which still flows down the mountain. The majestic Groenberg Mountain presides over Linton Park Wine Estate, which is minutes away from the charming and rustic town of Wellington in South Africa’s Western Cape province.
Many diverse micro climates are offered by the valley folds and mountain slopes and our vineyards are sited and prepared to optimise these.
The Estate’s three centuries of winemaking tradition is honoured by our grape growing and wine making teams.
We respect the vines natural cycles and by using modern cellar practices make complex yet elegant, characterful, awarded and identifiably Wellington Wines. +27 21 873 1625
