Wine with History

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.

“In 1699 Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel granted De Slange Rivier farm to Louis Fourie, a French Huguenot. The deed dated 28 February 1699 has been preserved and forms part of the Manor House’s art and antique furniture collection. He not only developed the farm’s agricultural landscape but planted vineyards and was highly regarded for his pioneering winemaking in Wellington.”

The Vineyards

We farm in harmony with nature using proven biological principles to reduce dependence on chemical sprays.

Several diverse microclimates are offered by the valley folds and mountain slopes and our vineyards are sited and prepared to optimize these. The Estate’s three centuries of winemaking tradition is honored by our grape growing and winemaking teams. We respect the vine’s natural cycles and by using modern cellar practices make complex yet elegant, characterful, awarded, and identifiably Wellington Wines.
