December 18, 2019

Originally from Los Angeles, O'Keefe took the plunge and bought a farm outside Greyton in 2000 in what was then an untested wine region. After many struggles to bring her dream to fruition, O'Keefe's friends funded a trip to London in 2012, where her wines achieved critical acclaim from the likes of Neal Martin. Lismore has also recently scored highly in Tim Atkin MW's latest report on South Africa.
