Our certified single vineyards are in the heart of the beautiful Robertson Wine Valley alongside the Breede River. Sauvignon Blanc single vineyards are positioned in our fertile sandy silt soil, ideal for cultivating our premium Sauvignon Blanc wine. The upper soil is deep loam enriched with lime, allowing good drainage yet retaining moisture. This is perfect for our premium Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wines.
The Bonnievale canal system meanders through the farm and separates these extreme soils, resulting in the diversity of earth types.
The vines are planted north to south, enabling them to receive all-day sun, while the south winds from the coast 150km away help to cool the vineyards during the hot summers.
Besides those varietals mentioned above, we have bottled Frankly My Dear (rosé), Pinot Noir, Blanc de Noir and Chenin Blanc. Varietals that will be joining our collection soon include Mourvèdre, Barbera, Sangiovese and Colombard.
The farm is cultivated by a small team that knows each vine by the feel of the rough bark beneath their fingers; each bunch carefully selected and hand-picked for superior quality.
Skilfully crafted by hand, each bottle reflects the passion and attention to detail that makes Esona’s wines so unique.
The Old Cellar tasting room offers personalised vertical wine tastings of the Esona wine range in grape-specific Riedel glasses. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the veranda or grass area surrounded by magnificent views, or cosy up at our fireplace during the winter months.
