About
Oneiric: the exquisite wine farm tucked away in the Kogelberg Biosphere, in Elgin, Western Cape. Surrounded by trout dams, an array of fauna & flora (2000 indigenous trees were planted, along with plants typical of the area) attract an assortment of bird life. Releasing its 2009 vintage in 2013 to rave reviews. With ratings in their 90’s, Oneiric has fast become one of South Africa’s finest wineries.

We landed up at Oneiric on old years day by chance as we happened to see they were open.
We got there early and came across Hanneka. We were travelling with our little puppy and she was so accommodating.
The wines were great and we had a fantastic relaxing afternoon.

Wonderful people.
Lovely White Chardonnay (very creamy and not too wooded).
Lots of crafts available for purchase in the wine tasting area - nice to sip and browse :)

We spent a few days of our last holiday in the Western Cape visiting wine valleys that we'd never been to before. A few years ago we were talking to a South African travel journalist who had just been to Elgin and was raving about the valley and the great experience that she'd had. With that in mind we managed to get a day set to travel from Cape Town. We made the mistake (or maybe not) of setting out on a Monday and my research was so late and sadly many of the wineries were closed. However, in desperate haste, I made contact with Shan at Oneiric via the website and subsequently whatsapp and we arranged for a private visit. We were blown away by the warmth of our welcome by Shan and felt extremely privileged that she took us through the Oneiric story and the wine tasting journey with the associated wines. We came away having bought around 8 bottles. There wasn't one that we didn't like (we bought a mixture of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and the First Quantum Grand Reserve). Unfortunately the Copper Lining Copper rose was not available on that day for tasting, however we arranged to meet up in Cape Town the following day to buy a couple of bottles. Needless to say following that tasting, another 6 bottles of rose were purchased!
In summary we loved the valley, the vineyard, Shan's hospitality and the wines themselves outshone many that we have tasted elsewhere. I would highly recommend seeking this vineyard out and sampling the excellent wines! A few have made it back to the UK and I'm looking forward to opening them in the near future!

As a special arrangement, on a day that they were formally closed, Shan made an exception and rented out the Cellar Room/Barn with an added wine tasting on Christmas Day! The wines are delightful so is Shan, the surroundings, the picnic areas and the venue. The perfect package deal for a special Greyling family Christmas Day!

The views alone are worth the drive, and the Oneiric wines deserve their accolades. In particular the merlot-base rose, in its stylish bottle complete with ground glass top - useful for table water later. Elgin wines aren't cheap (though they're not bank breaking either) but they are elegant and refined. Shan, the owner's daughter, presented the wines with a quiet confidence and, like the wines, a lack of pretension matched by a great enthusiasm for this beautiful place.
Tasting room is similarly minimalist, farm chic, open plan with rough bricks, scrubbed deal tables and a soaring sense of light and space. Well worth visiting.

Our Wine Group spent a couple of delightful hours on this farm - it is tucked away between mountains, hills, valleys and dams and the surroundings are charming.

Our hostess, Shan Pascall, went out of her way to accommodate all our requests.
We were seated in the Cellar Room where we tasted their latest OH range wines - what a pleasure. The buffet lunch provided was excellent and varied and reasonably priced.

All in all - a day to remember.

Thank you Oneiric.

On arrival we honestly were not excited about the tasting room but then the owner served us and we were blown away by the wines. It's homely and wholesome. And the wines are one of the best we have ever tasted.

We had a fantastic time at Oneiric last weekend sampling the very best of what the Elgin Valley has to offer. We had initially booked a picnic but due to the gale-force wind we couldn't make the most of the beautiful picnic spot and the owner very kindly allowed us to picnic inside the tasting room. The wines are some of the best we've had in the Western Cape and the owner, Matt, ensured our experience was top notch. We certainly left with a heavier car-boot! Thanks to Shan and Matt for organizing everything. We'll definitely be back - without a doubt!

If you are heading through or past the Elgin valley - do yourself a favour and make a booking to stop for a wine tasting and a picnic lunch at Oneiric Wines. It is quite simply one of the most beautiful wine estates I have ever visited. I loved all of the wines that we tasted and it was truly special to spend a little time with the wine maker exploring his cellar. This is a family owned estate and each wine is hand crafted. They make small quantities.........that were simply too large for the owner's own consumption........hence daughter Shan deciding to start selling some of the stock! Thank you for sharing Shan! Your family wines are great. We had a drive through the estate - and saw the area for picnicking. I cannot wait to return in summer and to spend a whole afternoon at Oneiric!! Thank you Oneiric Wines for making our visit to your estate so magical. We will be back!

A day trip to Elgin, one of my most favourite wine valleys, took us to Oneiric Wine Estate. What superb wines we tasted in their scenic wine cellar presented by Carla that shares her passion for wine as much as the passion that shines through the Oneiric wines! Afterwards we headed to a peaceful area setting surrounding water, lilies & green lush vegetation with plenty bird life, sipping on some more wine and nibbling our way through our delights- Oneiric Wines- what dreams are made of!
