Durbanville Hills

The estate is located in Durbanville in the South African wine-growing area of the same name (Ward). The young giant was pounded out of the ground in the 1990s, so to speak. The majority of it is owned by Distillers Corporation, and many grape growers are involved. The main building is a futuristic concrete block on a hill with a view of Table Mountain 30 kilometers away and Table Bay. This includes a state-of-the-art high-tech winery built for 8.5 million euros. The winemaker Martin Moore was previously at the famous winery for six years Groot Constantia active. The vineyards cover 770 hectares. They are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinotage, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. The first vintage was produced in 1999. The wines are developed in the three lines of simple varietal wines, the "Rhinofields" series and the single-layer wines developed in barrels.
