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.

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.
