Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. Together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary’s parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146 hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes.
The Indian Ocean lies 15 kilometres to the South with the Atlantic Ocean lying 24 kilometres to the West, enabling Jordan Wine Estate to specialise in classic varieties well-suited to the various micro-climates. The state-of-the-art cellar is designed around a gravity flow system using natural cooling with fermentation and aging taking place in underground cellars.
