25 April 2022: Break away to drink, dine and discover Sauvignon blanc wines at one of the Cape’s most exciting destinations – Cape Town’s northern vineyard at Durbanville, just 20 minutes from the CBD. 

The cool, two ocean-influenced climate of the Durbanville Wine Valley is ideal for the slow and flavourful development of wine grapes, particularly Sauvignon blanc. It is for this reason that Durbanville is one of oldest and most favoured wine regions at the Cape, consistently taking top international honours for Sauvignon blanc in particular.

South Africa, Durbanville, 24 November 2021: A collaboration by leading Cape wineries has followed the footsteps of a South African icon, producing a Cabernet Sauvignon from an exceptional vineyard that no longer exists. Its grapes hail from the same region that produced the internationally celebrated 1966 GS Cabernet Sauvignon.

While the GS and newly unveiled The Master’s Vineyards are unrelated in many ways, both highlight the calibre of terroir of the Durbanville Wine Valley (DWV) - where wine has been made since the end of the 17th century. The 1966 GS Cabernet Sauvignon was described by Wine Spectator magazine as “the one true classic wine ever produced in South Africa”. In 2015, UK authority Jancis Robinson awarded it a perfect score of 20/20.

Durbanville wine estate Diemersdal staked a place as one of the most successful producers in the history of the annual Absa Top 10 Pinotage Trophy awards by this year raking in its 10th Top 10 trophy. Diemersdal's The Journal Pinotage 2019 was selected as one of the Top 10 winners in the prestigious annual competition, which was held for the 25th time.

This places Diemersdal among the top three producers in the history of the Absa Top 10 competition and arguably the most successful winery ever from the Durbanville wine region. In an amazing year for Diemersdal thus far on the competition front, Diemersdal was recently also named Best Producer at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show.

South Africa, Durbanville, May 2021: Break away to drink, dine and discover one of the Cape’s most exciting destinations – Cape Town’s northern vineyard at Durbanville, just 20 minutes from the CBD. This is the invitation of the revitalized Durbanville Wine Valley (DWV). “Durbanville has always been popular with visitors, from day-trippers to travellers eager to experience a little more of the Cape. With spacious rural destinations being safer alternatives for near-home getaways, Durbanville is once again front of mind – and for good reason,” says newly appointed DWV manager Natasha de Villiers.
