Summers are dry and warm to hot, with some February and March days rising to over 30°C. Winters are cool, rainy and sometimes quite windy, with daytime temperatures averaging 16°C. Snow is usually seen a couple times in winter on the surrounding mountains. Spring and autumn are shoulder seasons and daytime temperatures hover in the 20°C's.Warm, dry summers, cold wet winters.Hutton, Clovelly and Kroonstad soils dominate the region and ensure a better-quality ripening environment for the Chenin blanc variety.

The vines are planted north to south on a five wire trellis system.
