Silvermist is a family owned Organic Wine Estate situated on the upper most slopes of the Constantia Valley. Creating Wine Estate was inspired by Gregory Brink Louw who has worked tirelessly over the last 19 years to create the only Organically Certified Wine Estate in the Constantia Wine Route. Invasive alien trees were cleared by hand and the wood is reused in the building, wooden decking as well as featured art in Silvermist Hotel.
In the beginning it Gregory and his trusty team 3 months to chop down the first 1.5ha of gum trees, 3 years to pick up the cut wood and 10 years before sipping the fruits of their labour as the first bottle of Silvermist Organic Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2010 vintage was released. The sweet taste of passionate perseverance.
His life ethos has been incorporated into his craft to create classic Constantia Wines in a sustainable and responsible manner. Greg has a simple, yet purist approach to wine-making and believes everything is a product of its environment. The vines are gown without the need for irrigation nor artificial chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers used during the farming or wine making process.
