Since its inception in 2007, Earth Hour has become one of the most recognised and fastest growing global initiatives of our time. During Earth Hour 2014, hundreds of millions of people in 162 countries and 7 000 cities took part. Cape Town ended up being voted the overall winner of the Cities Challenge for their pioneering action to combat climate change.

This year, Earth Hour takes place on 28 March, and people are once again encouraged to switch off lights for one hour to show their commitment towards the planet. Lomond Wines is proud to take part in this initiative.

Situated in the Uilenkraal River valley in the Gansbaai area, Lomond is one of only a few wine farms in the Cape Agulhas region. The essence of Lomond is sustainability and conservation, which ties in with the values of Earth Hour and the World Wildlife Federation. Therefore, the farm functions within the bigger picture of environmental conservation and community responsibility, investing in practices that support long-term sustainability.

The Pincushion Sauvignon Blanc is one of the results of Lomond’s environ-mentally minded farming practice. Named after the Pincushion Protea (Leu-cospermum patersonii), this single vineyard wine is characterised by abun-dant tropical fruit flavours. Hints of citrus complement the elegant palate with a fresh acidity, which balances out the intense fruit flavours. Over time, it has become one of the estate’s firm favourites, highlighting the cool climate in which the grapes grow.
