About Us



La Vierge, French for ‘The Virgin’, is nestled in the folds of the breathtaking Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth) close to Hermanus. Our lovingly tended vineyards, on Babylon Farm, are situated in Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, about 7 km further on the R320, and are characterized by long cool summers influenced by the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean.

The unspoiled beauty and provenance of our virgin terroir are reminiscent of the beginning of time in the Garden of Eden. This lush paradise with all its purity, simplicity, innocence and temptation of life’s beginnings are captured in our crest, where Adam and Eve ponder the Serpent and Apple. 

This is a place of distinction, where we celebrate outstanding Pinot Noir wines, wines to be desired.

We invite you into our world of indulgence without fear of retribution, to explore our beautiful crafted wines and one of a kind art. We believe that, as Oscar Wilde put it: “the only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.”

La Vierge. Wines of Desire.
