Durbanville

This hilly region just 20 minutes drive from Cape Town features 12 wineries and, thanks to its location near the coast, enjoys a cooler climate. As a result, Sauvignon Blanc is a star performer, and a number of vineyards produce award-winning and interesting variations of this popular grape. The higher altitude of certain farms has also resulted in top Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots and red blends.
