Lismore Estate

A call to arms.

Sadly, the new year hasn’t started so brightly for everyone. Many of you will have heard about the devastating fire that swept across the mountain behind Greyton, South Africa, destroying the Lismore winery and their family home. Sam O’Keefe and her boys are very good friends of Swig, indeed her youngest son, Quinn, made the white wine ‘Flora’ for my wedding last year. The good news is that Sam and her boys escaped physically unharmed, but sadly one of the much loved dogs did not. Sam also lost the entirety of her 2019 production (70,000L) which evaporated into the atmosphere and some 30%+ of her vineyards. To say she has a mountain to climb is an understatement. That said, if anyone’s a fighter, it’s Sam and we have no doubt she’ll be back stronger than ever. In the meantime, a fund raising page has been set up to raise a few Rand to help get her and her boys back on their feet - any/all contributions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
