Whilst Durbanville Hills Wines wasn’t established until the late 1990’s, wine has been produced in the Durbanville area from the end of the 17th century. Durbanville Hills would not have existed without the enthusiasm of the wineries producers and their faith in the high potential of their high-quality grapes. In the late 1990s seven grape farmers and Distell agreed to build a cellar as part of a joint venture to make their own wine. Since the first vintage in 1999, there are nine member farms, all located near the cellar.
The unique location of Durbanville Hills’ cellar a mere 20 minutes from Cape Town’s city centre, offers not only a spectacular view of Table Mountain and Table Bay, but also an extraordinary terroir that stabilises temperatures and eliminates extremes of heat and cold.
