Louis Fourie Reserve Range

This wine range is a tribute to the ‘Pioneering Spirit’ of the Frenchman Louis Fourie, who settled on the farm De Slange Rivier in 1699 near Wellington. Today the farm is the home of Linton Park Wines who produce fine wines of distinction.

Linton Park Method Cap Classique

Linton Park Wine Estate is part of the Groenberg appellation in a dramatically beautiful mountainous terrain. Our 294ha Estate is minutes away from the charming and rustic town of Wellington in South Africa’s Western Cape.

Linton Park Estate Range

Singularity, heritage, innovation, variety and commitment come together seamlessly with each Linton Park vintage. The Linton Legacy was bestowed upon the historic De Slange Rivier farm in 1995 with its purchase by a London based multinational sustainability-driven group. Almost 300 years after its 1699 creation, our hidden Cape gem was interwoven into the prestigious portfolio and rich tapestry of Camellia Plc.

Rhino Range

Proceeds from this wine range (of a Rand a bottle sold) are donated annually to support our conservation partner. We are aligned to Rhinos without Borders who translocate the animals to Botswana. We are deeply committed to sustainability in all our farming practices, protecting our Rhino field, eradicating alien vegetation and recycling water.

Our winemaker

Wine-making is a craft. Like any craft, it needs a personal touch.

Cellar master, Francois van Niekerk, believes in continuously learning, asking questions, and being curious.

Although he first studied Forestry before embarking on Viticulture and Oenology and later on completing an MBA, nature has been at the centre of all his life’s decisions.

Francois grew-up in Jeffreys Bay, the coastal town in the Eastern Cape famed for world-class surfing, and whilst studying at Saasveld Forestry College in George, was intrigued by winemaking through his roommate’s family’s involvement in the industry. He spent a season working at Slanghoek Cellar and the same year ventured to California to complete a harvest in America. He was hooked, and the following year, enrolled at Elsenburg College to study winemaking and the rest is history.

He never tires of the combination of equal parts creativity, science and passion that winemaking evokes. He revels in the fertile land from which Wellington harvest their grapes and the creativity in producing memorable wines true to origin.
