Tierhoek Sustainable Wine Farm

Cederberg, Western Cape

While the Tierhoek wine farm isn’t certified as organic it is managed in an organic way with (at present for the last 6 years at least) zero use of non-organic pest control. The remote site, situated 760m up in the mountains, is influenced by cool Atlantic sea air from the west coast along with dry heat from the mountains. Because the farm is so remote and quite high up in the Cederberg it is less vulnerable to migrating pests from neighbouring farms.
