Sir Lambert Wines

First the town of Lambert’s Bay was named after Admiral Sir Robert Lambert who was the commander of the Cape Town Naval Station in the early 1820’s. From 1826 to 1840 Sir Lambert surveyed the coastline for the Royal British Navy and later the bay was renamed after him.

Then Sir Lambert Wines– appeared on the West Coast horizon. Sir Lambert Sauvignon Blanc became the first wine to be certified as being made from grapes of this ward. The ward of Lamberts Bay was registered as a new Wine of Origin in 2007.
It won a Gold Medal at the Michelangelo International Wine Awards in the first year that it was entered and the John Platter Wine Guide awarded it four stars.

The Sir Lambert vineyards – a mere four kilometers from the sea – have quite a unique location. Seeing that it is so close to the ocean the cold sea breeze from the Atlantic Ocean meets the heat of the land of the West Coast. This cool sea breeze gives the wine its special characteristics.

You can even celebrate your wedding, or any other special occasion, in the vineyards of this wine estate. The appropriately named Sauvignon Blanc Hall hosts a maximum of 350 people. You will have a panoramic view of Lambert’s Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Apart from offering a wedding venue, Sir Lambert estate also offers conference facilities, self-catering units, camping sites and a 9-hole golf course in a 260 ha nature reserve.
