Jon and Ingrid Tonkin had been coming to Plettenberg Bay on holiday for over 30 years before settling permanently at The Crags in the foothills of the Tsitsikamma Mountains in 2012. They named the farm after the naturally magnetized mineral magnetite – Lodestone – because of the appeal it held for them. Its first harvest came in 2014. Vines planted include Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Semillon which are used to make still and sparkling wines. Visitors are occasionally also treated to a glass of cold, refreshing honeybush tea, which Lodestone farms along with olives and king proteas.
