The Old Road Wine Co. tells the story of special vines grown in the rugged corners of the Franschhoek wine country. The worn smooth stones of a meandering trail tell the story of dedicated farm hands that tend to this 35 year-old vineyard, isolated amongst the fynbos and forest on the slopes of the Franschhoek valley.
The vineyard that supplies the grapes for this wine is 36 years old, unirrigated, and at an altitude of 380 m above sea level. The vineyard started as a trellised vineyard, but over the years it became an improvised bushvine. Its grapes give excellent acidity in this wine and a perfect balance. At this high altitude, the vineyard is exposed to cool afternoon breezes every day.
