As the shot of the Signal Gun echoes through the vineyards of our picturesque farm it signals the start of a new generation of wine making. Owned by the 5th generation De Wit Family, we pride ourselves in making small quantities of fine wine from our carefully selected grapes. Be assured that the tasteful memories of our wines will keep on echoing.
Cannon Firing @ Signal Gun
The VOC installed more than 50 cannons on hills and mountains around the Cape to form a Signal Gun chain which called the Burgher Militia to defend the Cape. This Signal Gun chain extended from Signal Hill, Cape Town via Durbanville to Citrusdal in the North West, Worcester in the North and via Tygerberg to Suurbraak beyond Swellendam in the East. Some of these cannons are still used our farm today, 300 years later, but only on joyful occasions.
Every so often we fire our 300 year old cannon. This takes place at 12pm every 1st Saturday of each month, including public holidays (weather permitting).
