About
Coolest vineyard in Elgin, overlooking the Elgin Valley in the North and the Atlantic Ocean in the South, offering world class Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and our unique red blend, the One Man Band, a blend of 6 grape varieties. The Herbert Baker homestead is surrounded by a lovely garden and mature trees.

Well worth a visit
Dec. 2019
Last minute we decided to visit Iona wine farm - It was well worth the 6km dirt road trip. The wines were really great. Karen took us through the tasting and was very friendly and knowledgeable. The setting is absolutely beautiful too!

Top quality wines worth going out of the way for
Oct. 2019 • Couples
This was actually the closest winery to the Arabella Resort we are currently at for a week so we decided to call ahead and make sure they were open on a windy, rainy day that wiped out our golf plans. We were encouraged to visit and happened to run into the owner Andrew Gunn who talked to us for a few minutes even though he had a small scheduled group waiting for him downstairs.

We then had a private tasting for two with a young hostess and enjoyed sips of the the 5 wines offered. Wow! Delicious and amazing. We bought two bottles for an in room supply and now wish we had purchased more. The 6 km over the well worn road is worth every bump. You will be warmly greeted and rewarded! Do not miss this place!

Seriously Cool Wines
Feb. 2019 • Couples
Not a winery you'd stumble over but well worth the rutted red murram Highlands Road drive from nearby Grabouw. The farm, including well appointed tasting room complete with vintage Porshe 911 and splendid host Karen, is well situated and picturesque. Often thought of as a one trick Sauvignon Blanc pony Iona is far more and it surely will not be long before it's other wines such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay join their SB on the international stage.

Magical in every way!
Jul. 2018 • Couples
Iona is a true gem! It is without a doubt, one of the best wine farms in South Africa with delicious wine and a gorgeous setting. You can't help wonder where you will end up when you are on the road up there but once through the gate, you realise the road was worth it! We arranged an appointment for wine tasting on Saturday and had the farm to ourselves with the exceptional Karen walking us through the Iona range. This farm is always the top of our list when visiting the area!

Winefarm visit - Iona, Grabouw
Mar. 2017 • Couples
Farm lovely, hostess very knowledgeable. Setting fantastic - views across valley superb.
Unsuccessful wine sales to us. Tried 3 wines 1 white and 2 Reds. We usually drink red but found the white one best of the 3.

Lovely wine tasting experience!

Well worth the visit
Dec. 2015 • Solo
I was apprehensive to travel the 6 km gravel road but it was well worth the visit. The setting is beautiful and the wine was some of the best I tasted in the region. There are only three wines available for tasting and purchase, and I ended up buying all three. I will probably order more. Do yourself a favor and visit if you are in the region.

One of South Africa's Top Vineyards
Apr. 2015 • Couples
This vineyard is a must for all wine lovers. Not only does it produce some of South Africa's top wines, but it also offers a fantastic experience for visitors with the unique combination of art architecture, nature and even a classic Porsche!
