  • Farm Family

    It’s times like these that really re-set one’s perspective. While wine is our job, this farm is our life. Our Lomond team may be incredibly diverse, but we are a family because we share this fact. In an effort to focus on the positive during these challenging times – we’d like to take the next few weeks to introduce you to our #FarmFamily. These are the unsung heroes of Lomond and we hope you’ll join us in lifting a glass to them. Cheers!

    Farm Manager – Koos Groenewald

  • Alcohol Ban Update 13/07/2020

    Surely you’ve heard the news by now regarding the reinstitution of the country-wide ban on alcohol. It has been a poignant reminder that we are not yet out of the woods when it comes to the Covid-19 pandemic. We all share many emotions with these new regulations as jobs and livelihoods hang in the balance. Still, it is not our place to debate the efficacy of such actions. We hold fast to our faith that we are all simply doing the best we can to defeat Covid and to support our fellow South Africans. And defeat it, we will.

    For now, we must first thank you all for your continued support. Our winemaking team in the cellar, the lovely ladies in the tasting room who have learned e-commerce on the fly over these last 12 weeks, and all of the hands out in the vineyards pruning the vines right now are only there because of you. 

    The storm knocked the power out last night. As the rain and the wind howled outside, we had a farm-wide meeting by candlelight first thing this morning. The mood was somber but more importantly it was hopeful. This farm is our home and all of you have become our family. Together, we’ll make it through this again.

    For now, we are working to get clarity on what we can do about orders that have been placed but have not yet been fulfilled. If you are in this group, please look for a note from us shortly on how we are able to proceed. 

    We will continue to take orders through our online shop and would encourage you to take advantage of the deals available there during the ban. We’ve learned A LOT from the first time around and have implemented all new systems starting right now to ensure Lomond wines are the very first in the delivery queues when this ban is lifted. We will continue to inquire with those in the wine industry working directly with the government to get you the most up-to-date info on signs of when we can deliver again.

    Beyond this, we’ve got some more exciting virtual events to bring to you in the coming weeks. Look for info on these soon.

    From all of us here on the farm, thank you. Be well and stay safe.
