Our 1771 Heritage , made from the oldest fruit bearing vine in the Southern Hemisphere, said to have been planted circa 1771, received 4 stars in the new edition of Platter's wine guide.
It is available at the winery, in very limited quantities....
Unfortunately the landlord of Heritage Square decided unilaterally that Signal Hill was not any longer in charge of the historic vine. We regret this situation, but it gives wine collectors a reason to purchase the last very rare bottles of this historic wine, made by Signal Hill.
LAST MINUTE: SIGNAL HILL has been selected to showcase one of our famous cuvée during the 40th Nederburg Auction. Our Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 Antica, will be sold at the Auction.

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
