The unique location of Durbanville Hills, located just 20 minutes from Cape Town’s city centre, offers not only spectacular views of Table Mountain and Table Bay, but also an extraordinary terroir for growing grapes. Like their Sauvignon Blanc that excels in cool conditions against the south-facing slopes, and their range of reds that benefit from the warmer northern slopes.
