Situated in the heart of the Durbanville Wine Valley you will find this family owned and run wine cellar. Although not intentionally driven to achieve awards, there is no denying the prestigious status of the estate's boutique wines.

As the mist settles on the rolling green meadows and vineyards of Hooggelegen in the small region of Durbanville, settle down to wine tasting in the Cape Winelands. You can also sample local craft beers brewed by the cellar master as well as biltong and cheese platters. Also available are olives, olive oils and spent malt bread.

The Durbanville Wine Valley is situated approximately 30 minutes from the airport and 25 minutes from Cape town's CBD.
