Hillcrest Estate is a boutique winery, nestled in the Tygerberg Hills on the outskirts of Durbanville. Only a 30-minute drive from Cape Town, this unique estate offers visitors a host of activities, a casual style restaurant, delicious olives and award winning wines.
It is the terroir of the farm’s vineyards, cooled by afternoon sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean, which sets it apart in one of the prime growing grape regions of the Western Cape. Hillcrest’s well-drained slopes are differentiated into Oakleaf, Hutton and Clovelly types soils, yielding distinctive fruit and great wines.
