What Makes Us So Unique - The Durbanville ward is officially considered one of the Cape's two coolest wine regions. This is thanks to the sea breezes that drift inland from False Bay and Table Bay and the late afternoon mists that bathe the surrounding slopes; giving our vineyards a unique blend of characteristics. In the cellar, using a combination of science and art, all the can do is winemakers shape and nurture the bounty brought in from the vineyards. During this process - as part of our - we recover, purify and re-use waste water to cause minimum disruption to the environment. Wine to Water initiative
