About Lismore

Nestled amongst the verdant landscapes of South Africa's Western Cape, Lismore winery is a haven of exquisite craftsmanship and refined elegance. Established in 2000, Lismore has quickly become a touchstone for premier wines, consistently garnering acclaim from revered wine critics internationally.

Named after the Scottish town where proprietor and winemaker Samantha O'Keefe grew up, Lismore is the tangible manifestation of her lifelong dream. After settling in the Cape and meticulously selecting the perfect location, Samantha’s fervour was rewarded with a vineyard that illustrates the stunning diversity of South African terroir.

The vineyard, located on steep slopes of gray shale and ancient broken mountain rock, offers a complex soil - a perfect base for cultivating unique and richly layered wines. The estate specialises in crafting small batches of Chardonnay, Syrah and Viognier, that encapsulate the quintessential character of cool climate wines.

From the undulating vineyards to the oak barrel-aged vintages, every aspect of Lismore radiates attention to detail. Each wine is harvested and sorted by hand, ensuring only the finest grapes contribute to the end product. Notably, the ageing process takes place in French oak barrels, infusing the wine with a delicately smooth and balanced profile.

Though Lismore's catalogue of accolades is impressive indeed, it's the experience of the vineyard that truly captures the hearts of enophiles and casual wine drinkers alike. Visitors are treated to a panoramic view of rolling vineyards against a hauntingly beautiful mountainous backdrop. It’s this harmonious blend of nature's splendour and manmade perfection that makes Lismore a wine lover's paradise.

Whether you're a wine aficionado or a rookie embracing your first taste of South African wine, this is a place of significant quality and charm you'll savour in every sip. You don't merely taste Lismore's wines: you relinquish yourself to an experience that, much like their wines is worth lingering over.---

At the end of the day, Lismore doesn’t just produce fine wines, it genuinely delivers a captivating experience that will certainly leave an indelible imprint on your palate and your soul.
