Sonop (Afrikaans for sunrise)
The sun hovering just above the horizon…A new day is dawning and awakens the natural beauty surrounding the vines nestled at the foot of the mountain. In an ecstatic moment, the sun reveals a jewel unequivocal to the naked eye. This is where Sonop Wine Farm lies… as the sun rises across the vast land, the majestic Table Mountain grows in stature.
Winds of change
Inspired by Mandela’s quest and ambition, Sonop Wine Farm established an empowerment project in support of restoring the hope and pride of a community too long oppressed. This project gave rise to a brand today known as Winds of Change in celebration and commemoration of a rich history daring to change. Today the members of the community are proud owners of their own land on Sonop Wine Farm. The Winds of Change brand is a product developed in celebration of the change and freedom inspired by Nelson Mandela.
A tribute to the magic land of South Africa which offers a unique blend of natural resources and spectacular conditions to grow nourishing and tasty fruits.
