The 26 acre property was purchased at the end of 2002 and the first grapes were planted in 2005. Verdelho, 1 acre, was the first variety planted. It was then decided to try something different and an acre of Pinotage was planted in 2007. (Pinotage is a South African variety and was created from a Pinot Noir X Cinsaut cross.) In 2012 another half acre of Verdelho was planted and then a half acre of Pinot Gris in 2017
Ravens Croft’s own wine making facility was newly established in 2009 with a 50 tonne capacity. We have a fully automated bottling line, so all wines are bottled onsite.
