    [post_content] => We believe that wine making starts in the vineyard. Primarily with root stock and clone selection, secondly with individual block and vine management and finally, with fastidious disease control. The vineyards are maintained by hand throughout the year. Eagles’ Nest is planted predominantly to Shiraz, Merlot and Viognier. The decision to plant these grape varieties was done after extensive soil and climatic research to ensure that what was planted was best suited to our uniqueterroir. The vineyards are planted on some of the steeps agricultural slopes in South Africa and therefore we have made use of a unique terracing system to maximise the sunlight hours the vines receive.
