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.
Proceeds from this wine range (of a Rand a bottle sold) are donated annually to support our conservation partner. Grapes are handpicked in the early hours of the harvesting day to retain the fresh character of the fruit.

Personal Food pairing:
Pairs with a wide scope of dishes, one such dish is a vegetable Soufflé with Baked Goat Cheese and Pancetta Cream the crisp natural acidity in this wine cuts through the richness of the soufflé, and enhances the fresh herbaceous flavors in the dish, and the flavors of both food and wine combine deliciously to linger on the palate, and it can quite simply be sipped solo.
