About Longridge

Longridge Wine Estate is proud to be leading the way in sustainable wine farming by utilising the power of the sun. Solar panels help them reduce their carbon footprint, improve their profitability, and operate more efficiently.

Focussing on the varieties that are best suited to their climate and soils; Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc (Steen) have both proven themselves over the years as well as the classic red varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and of course South African Pinotage.

We do not want to make all the various additions modern winemakers use to produce wines quicker and cheaper. Accordingly, we use less sulphur dioxide and no commercial yeast, enzymes, fining agents, stabilising agents or filtration methods.

“Our philosophy is simple – we want to make enjoyable wines that are healthy to drink and of a world-class standard.”
