Samantha O’Keefe left California with dreams of finding paradise. She found this in Greyton where, tucked into the foothills of a dramatic mountain range at the bottom of Africa, Lismore Estate Vineyards was born. Passion and vision, combined with vines planted at 300 meters, chilled by winter snow and nourished by the summer sun, produces classic, cool climate wines which are rich, complex and lovingly hand crafted.
Lismore’s vineyards are planted on slopes at the base of the Riviersonderend Mountain Range. The combination of elevation and a cool climate make for an extended ripening period which is roughly 3-4 weeks later than the more traditional wine growing areas in the Western Cape.
Our portfolio includes the estate Syrah, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, a barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc and the Age of Grace Viognier which was borne out of a challenging harvest, but has proven to be as successful as the estate wines. Occasionally an exceptional harvest leads to the production of a Reserve Chardonnay which is available in limited quantities on allocation.
