The Drift Farm

About the farm
The soul of this remarkable family farm is a collection of small, soil-specific, mountain vineyards in the Overberg Highlands. The wines produced on this farm are exceptional examples of a total commitment to great wine. A small, passionate team are responsible for every stage of the winemaking process; from caring for the vines to hand-made wines – even hand labeling the bottles. These wines aim to change the way you view the world.

Philosophy
The energy of memory. Beginning with swirling dust around your head as you hand-plant dormant vines into the ancient, anticipating soil. The journey begins somewhere in our collective human ambition – it meanders through doubt, hesitates at the fear of failure, crests horizons of relief when things go right. The goal is unclear – not what business gurus recommend. But you’ve planted an improbable vineyard on a crazy, windswept mountainside because it felt necessary; the way it is necessary for a heart to beat faster when the head falls in love. The dream is a promise whispered quietly to oneself under an encouraging applause of stars in the middle of a wine-fuelled night. The wine is simply this.
