The century-old Elgin Orchards farm is home to Elgin Vintners – an association of shareholders and various winemakers. At its heart, among orchards, vineyards and pastures is the renovated Victorian homestead. Where the Ridgelands Manor House was once a nursing station for wounded soldiers returning home after WW2, it now serves as guesthouse and hosts wine tastings among the library shelves and on the sandstone terrace with views of surrounding landscape. Two wine ranges serve to highlight the effect of amongst others a cool climate on fruit in this region.
