A tranquil escape from the city: the wine valley hidden in the suburbs
25-minutes from Cape Town lies the Durbanville wine valley, tucked into the green suburbs. A serene and hidden gem of the Cape Town wine region, it's well-known for its Sauvignon Blanc

Hidden in quiet farmlands on the edge of Cape Town’s northern suburbs, the Durbanville wine route offers a unique selection of award-winning wine tasting experiences, scenic views and gourmet restaurants. With its one-of-a-kind climate and terroir, the Durbanville valley is best known for its outstanding white wines, especially Sauvignon Blanc.

Dating back to 1698, this Durbanville wine farm’s unique location – where the icy Atlantic sea breeze meets the dry heat of the interior – has blessed it with wines of superior quality and singular character. Enjoy an outdoor wine pairing with delectable cheese and charcuterie platters, or the old stable restaurant’s fusion fare – the perfect foil for the farm’s exclusive range of wines.

De Grendel

Well-known for its Méthode Cap Classique and excellent Pinotage, this historic Durbanville wine farm produces stellar wines and serves world-class cuisine with a contemporary twist. Located in the pristine “Renosterveld” natural vegetation area, the farm is carbon negative and its biodiversity is protected by sustainable farming practices – a passion of the owners.


Overlooking the Durbanville Wine Valley, you will find the family-owned and -operated wine cellar of Nitida. Nature is a part of everything they do, and it’s reflected in Nitida’s wines. Eat at the ‘Cassia’ or ‘Tables at Nitida’ restaurants, or enjoy a relaxed Durbanville wine tasting.
