Durbanville Hills has been a home to vineyards since the late 17th century. The village was officially named Durbanville in 1886. The hills refer to the Tygerberg which was named by early settlers for its resemblance to the spots on a leopards skin. The Durbanville Hills cellars, however, was only established in the late 1990’s and consisted of grape farmers in a joint venture with Distell. Today they have nine-member producers. With Martin Moore as the cellar master, Kobus Gerber for white wine and Wilhelm Coetzee for red wine, the cellar produces a variety of high-quality wines that are extremely popular in South Africa.
