Commitment to Conservation


Conservation Servitude

In 2017 Lomond Wine Estate became the first wine farm in SA to sign 68 hectares of endangered Overberg Sandstone Fynbos andendangered Elim Ferricrete Fynbos into a conservation servitude, in partnership with the Grootbos Foundation and Fauna and Flora International. This safeguards populations of endangered species such as Aloe judii, a locally endemic Aloe which is only known from a few populations, and Leucadendron elimense, a rare conebush which is associated with ferricrete soils.

Protected Environment

Walker Bay Protected Environment

In a significant step towards preserving its natural heritage and fostering sustainable land management, Lomond Wine Estate has embarked on declaring its property as a Protected Environment. This bold move reflects the estate’s commitment to environmental stewardship and marks a new chapter in its journey towards sustainable viticulture and conservation. Lomond Wine Estate, along with seven other landowners within the conservancy, are in the final steps of declaring their properties as a Protected Environment, a legally designated area established under the National Environmental Management: Protected Areas Act (NEMPAA) of 2003.  The Walker Bay Protected Environment aims at conserving important ecological features and biodiversity while promoting sustainable land and resource management.
