Wallovale Vineyards

Home of the Paul Wallace “Black Dog” Malbec

Paul and Nicky Wallace purchased their 25 hectare farm in September 2003 and immediately set out to create their own little piece of heaven. Paul is a viticultural consultant and here at last he could practise what he had advised and encouraged other farmers to do in their vineyards. It has long been Paul’s belief that the cool-climate region of Elgin, previously best known for its apples and pears, is one of the most exciting new wine regions within the South African wine industry and indeed internationally.

The Golden Delicious and Granny Smith orchards have been replaced by plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec and Pinot Noir, changing the face of the farm entirely.

Whilst there are a total of 9.6 hectares planted, there remains arable land for a further six hectares to be planted. In the meantime while the choice of future of cultivar plantings is stilll hotly debated at the dinner table, cattle graze peacefully on the rolling pastures.
