Surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Iona lays claim to the title as coolest vineyard in the Cape. It was acquired in the late 1990s by Andrew Gunn, an engineer by training who set about exchanging its apples and pears for vineyards. Its first vintage came in 2001. Two years later, he married Rozy, a sculptor by profession, who brought art to Andrew's science in the wine enterprise. Iona's philosophy is to make wine that expresses the soils and climate as closely as possible, making use of sustainable farming and to maximise the use of natural products in the process.
