About Idiom
Idiom Vineyards and Mountains
The location

Idiom's vineyards are located on the foothills of impressive granite mountains over looking False Bay. The vineyards are at 200-350m above sea level and the soils are composed of decomposed granite, which is relatively shallow in places and very stony, on top of a clay base. 

Establishing the vines

Alberto was the man who set up the vineyard and he started out with just a large plot of mountain side covered with scrub and wild cape flowers. He completely over hauled the land, using advice from soil scientists and viticulture experts, to plant the right vines in the right micro areas of the new vineyards.

For the first three years the vines were not irrigated so that they would be forced to develop deep and complex root systems, taking full advantage of the mineral rich soils. He also planted a variety of vines so that he could make classic blends inspired by the Cape and by Bordeaux.

Award winning wines

Roberto, Alberto’s son is now the head winemaker and works with some of the world's best oeologues. Idiom is a real family affair – even the bottle labels and design were done by Alberto's daughter. 

These are icon wines that are now challenging for the top spots in every South African Show with major success over the last 3 years.
