In the middle of the Cape Town CBD, the only urban winery in South Africa... We receive grapes in the middle of the city, crush and press them, ferment their juice into wine, barrel age it and bottle onsite. All our winemaking steps are open to the public, and wine lovers can actually join the harvest, the pressing or the bottling.  

This is why we are a winery, not just a tasting room!  

However Signal Hill winery is a very traditional winery, making wine only a few hundred meters from where the first grapes where ever pressed in South Africa, on 2nd of February 1659... We are history and we prepare the future of the South African wine industry! 

SIGNAL HILL WINERY is famous worldwide for its range of experimental wines, and for pioneering unusual varietals, new styles or the revival of lost jewels... Check the list of our wines and feel free to explore our philosophy: Vive la Difference
