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

Had an absolutely fantastic experience at your winery. Karen was very friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed your chardonnay and we will definitely be back.

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!

Everytime i came to visit Gordonsbay i said i would like to visit iona wines ..well we went there today..through a dirty road at last we found it. Nobody was there not inside not outside...there was just nobody only dogs that came out to welcome us. It was a bit scary so we came all the way back home..was just not worth it so many kms and there was just o one. Because its my name the name of the farm ot would be so nice to visit..🙈

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.
