Inspired by Cape Town’s radiant energy and creative demeanour, the new premium offering - The Collector’s Reserve - is a unique range specially crafted by The Durbanville Hills winemakers using only the finest grapes from Cape Town’s best vineyards. To truly connect the Winelands and City, they have handpicked prominent landmarks in Cape Town and commissioned a vibrant Capetonian artist - Theo Vorster - to impart his vision of these landmarks onto each bottle. This range has been designed as a collector’s item for both wine and art lovers alike.
What's in a name: The Company's Garden in Cape Town dates back to when fresh produce and supplies were first provided to ships rounding the Cape. Although originally a vegetable garden, it was not long before the first Chenin Blanc vineyards were planted, and today, the Gardens are recognised for their contribution to the Cape’s horticultural heritage. The Chenin Blanc is a true tribute to these Gardens and the origins of Chenin Blanc in the Cape of Good Hope.
