About the Range

While Thelema in Stellenbosch kept flourishing, Gyles Webb felt it was time for a new challenge. He embarked on a search for the right property and terroir for a second vineyard. In 2002, the Webb family purchased an idyllic apple farm in the cool coastal region of Elgin. Shortly after, the 100ha property was converted into vines, beginning with Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay with more varietals being planted over time. And so, Sutherland Vineyards was born.

The Elgin Valley is located about 70 kms southeast of Cape Town in the Overberg region. It is uniquely set on a high plateau surrounded by mountains, and forms part of the Kogelberg Biosphere where numerous Protea species can be found. Elgin is a world famous apple-producing area, but is now also quickly gaining acclaim for its aromatic white wines.

Sutherland Vineyards is situated just 9 kms off the Atlantic Ocean with altitudes of 140 to 250 meters above sea level. The cool maritime climate allows for slower ripening than in other Cape Wineland areas producing wines with vibrant concentrated fruit flavours and an elegant minerality. All Sutherland wines are bottled and produced at the estate in Stellenbosch. The classic Thelema and new Sutherland range sharply contrast in character, but are equally satisfying.
