Within close proximity to Kay and Monty Vineyards, Lodestone was founded with a lovely back story of husband and wife, Jon and Ingrid Tonkin, who had been holidaying in Plettenberg Bay every year since 1983. They purchased this Plettenberg Bay Winelands estate in 2012 and with much hard work and nurturing, the land was transformed to produce the first Lodestone Sauvignon Blanc in 2014 and Olive Oil followed in 2016.
“Our wines bring people together.”
The tasting room has been open since 2017 and so this winery is as modern as you can get featuring a wine bar and fireplace. Service is professional and friendly in a relaxed setting. Expect to hear the birds tweeting as they nest around the lake.
The best part about this estate are the beautiful views of the lake and mountains. There’s plenty of seating so bring as many people as you can and spend the entire day here.
Taste 6 wines for between R10 – R20 a tasting. Platters are R120 each and there are other lunch options available too such as Ribeye steak, Seared tuna and chicken pies.
Their range of wines now include: sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and a dry rosé. They also introduced an externally sourced red blend, which they called The Jimdog ( named after their Border Terrier, Jimmy), which is a blend of shiraz, malbec and cabernet sauvignon.
What’s interesting is that Lodestone also
What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy some wine whilst being entertained by nature at it’s best. Thanks Lodestone!
