Hillcrest Estate is a boutique winery nestled in the Tygerberg Hills in the ward of Durbanville a mere 30 minute drive from Cape Town. The vineyards are cooled by afternoon sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean which makes it one of the prime growing grape regions in the Western Cape. On the estate well drained soils with good water retention capacity are differentiated into Oakleaf, Hutton and Clovelly types which favour the production of good quality grapes and consequently great wines. In addition the vineyards are strewen with baked shale or “Hornfels”, the result of a geological event millions of years ago, which impart a distinct minerality to the wines.
