About the garden

Iona is the coolest vineyard in the Cape, 420m above sea-level, high above the picturesque Elgin Valley.

Iona is surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean in the South. In a country where cool sites are precious, these vineyards are like gold — the grapes ripening up to two months later than other Cape vineyards and in perfect balance.

Opening times

Monday - Friday: 09h00 to 16h00 Weekends: By appointment

Beautiful estate with a wine tasting costing 50ZAR. The wines (per bottle) were quite pricy for the quality so we ended up not buying anything. In the tasting room there is a small art gallery with beautiful pieces

We visited Iona last Friday (29.10.21). Loved the estate and talking with Rozy and her assistant. Excellent wines. Attaching two photos, one of the classic Cape Dutch manor house, and the other of the classic VW beetle in the wine tasting room. A delight!

The dirt road is about 6km from Kleinmond’s side. When we drove it, not too bad for a gravel road but it is a bit of a drive without an SUV (or a rental🤣). The wines offer a unique taste experience. I would definitely recommend it if you keen on the drive:) I mean; just look at the entrance.

Really beautiful setting, with interesting stories of Iona's name and history, told by the daughter and sommelier Sophie. And the the wine is really enjoyable too, if a little on the pricey side.

Checked opening times on website - drove all the way to the Estate - we are from Dubai - to find a notice pinned on door to call for tastings - no reply!!!! Drove away. No call back. Unacceptable. Loved your wines - will certainly find another estate to support going forward.
