Hillcrest Wine Estate at a glance...
Located 30 minutes outside Cape Town on the outskirts of Durbanville, this unique estate offers visitors a host of activities, a much-loved restaurant, delicious olives and of course award winning wines available right here on Miles For Style.
The close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean and it’s cool breeze makes for prime grape-growing regions in the Western Cape. The estate’s well drained soils have a great capacity for water retention and are differentiated into Oakleaf, Hutton and Clovelly types which flavour the production of high-quality grapes and consistently good wine.
Hillcrest’s vineyards are planted on Northwest facing slopes between 200 and 380 meters ASL. The undulating landscape offers a range of micro-climates which allows different grape varietals to be planted in the various suitable conditions to attain optimal quality.
Thus Sauvignon Blanc which requires cool ripening conditions is planted on the higher slopes. The cooler conditions also extend the ripening period which favours the accumulation and concentration of typical sauvignon lime and passion fruit flavours.
The five Bordeaux varietals are planted on lower slopes, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot planted on the lowest slopes . These are late ripeners which require warmer conditions to ensure that the grapes are optimally ripe at harvest. Various vineyard management techniques such as leaf plucking to increase sunlight penetration and green harvesting to attain uniform ripeness at harvest are practiced to improve grape quality.
In addition the vineyards are strewn with baked shale or “Hornfels”. This is a result of a geological event millions of years ago, which has imparted a distinct minerality to Hillcrest’s wines and has led to the name of the Flagship Bordeaux Blend.
Hillcrest restaurant will be celebrating Valentine’s Day from the 8th till the 14th with something special everyday.

The requirements have been met and Hillcrest can proudly guarantee that their olives are 100% South African.
