Samantha O’Keefe grew up in California but her grandfather hailed from the south of Ireland. She found herself in the Cape where whe stumbled on an old disused dairy farm called Lismore. The farm, where Sam works single handledly is located in the remote mountainous area of Greyton two hours from Cape Town at the end of a dirt road. She is now one of the Cape’s most talented winemakers particularly with a range of single varietal wines both red and white. There is hardly a week that goes by that one of her wines is not lauded by wine writers across the globe.
