We want to hear about the wine
A man called Gregory Brink Louw has worked tirelessly to over the last 18 years to create Silvermist Organic Wine Farm. His ethos of life has definitely slipped into his wine, to create what is now the only organic wine farm in Constantia. How crazy is that.
“Greg believes that everything is a product of its environment. This is why when you walk around the Estate, you will see the it’s not just the vines that are grown naturally and in tune with the Earth. The invasive tree’s have been chopped down by hand and reused in the buildings, wooden decking and featured Art in the Hotel. The compost is made from organic waste and the vines are growing without the need for irrigation or reliance upon pesticides, herbicides and chemicals. What is produced is the product of love, passion and an un-moving care for both the natural environment and its people.”
