Usher in the festive season with a gift set from Durbanville Hills

Durbanville Hills’ wonderful gift options are a celebration of the winery’s cool-climate terrain, where cool sea breezes and morning mist bathe the hillsides with fresh, moist air, allowing the grapes to ripen leisurely and optimally.

The Collectors Reserve range is inspired by the radiant energy and creativity of the Mother City, and our vintners selected the best grapes from the best vineyards in Cape Town.

Each wine in the range is paired with city highlights, many visible from the hills of Durbanville, and exquisitely illustrated by Capetonian artist Theo Paul Vorster.

One of the gift sets includes a bottle of Cape Mist Sauvignon Blanc and Lighthouse Merlot, and a set of six coasters depicting the highlights.

At the recent Veritas Wine Awards, Sauvignon Blanc was awarded double gold and Merlot, with a gold medal.

Cape Mist Sauvignon Blanc is named after this natural phenomenon in Cape Town, which stealthily moves a cool Atlantic breeze over Table Bay.

The mist provides a soft blanket over the surrounding hillsides and creates the perfect cool climatic conditions associated with the Durbanville terroir, allowing the grapes to mature quietly with rich flavors and balanced acidity.

Green Point’s cheery red-and-white-striped lighthouse with its fog horn, affectionately known as “Moaning Minnie,” is beautifully illustrated in the Collectors Reserve Lighthouse Merlot.

The lighthouse is known for guiding ships along the Cape’s rugged and misty coastline, the very misty conditions that are ideal for developing Merlot’s characteristic mint and red cherry aromas.

There are many other gifts to choose from and carefully curated by winemakers. The Durbanville Hills gift collection will captivate the senses of your wine-loving friends and family.
