Iona   Iona Logo

The wines of Iona come from a dramatically unique site in the Cape Winelands. The vineyards are on a mountain plateau 420 metres above sea level, surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

In a country where cool sites are precious, these vineyards are like gold - the grapes ripening up to two months later than other Cape vineyards and in perfect balance. Iona is South Africa's coolest vineyard site.

Andrew Gunn and family acquired this beautiful, but run-down apple farm in 1997. It was renamed "Iona" after the remote, spiritual island off the west coast of Scotland. Andrew Gunn can trace his ancestry to the Vikings that landed in Scotland in the 900s, hence the Viking longboat emblem on our labels.
