The slopes at DeMorgenzon rise from about 200m to nearly 400m above sea level and the vistas embrace Cape Town, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Cape Hangklip, the Hottentots Holland mountains, Helderberg and Simonsberg with the ocean as a backdrop. While the estate could be called “mountain vineyards”, the owners prefer it to be known as “garden vineyards”. In Spring, specially chosen wildflowers flourish between the vines. They have no doubt that a biodiverse and ecologically sensitive environment produces infinitely better grapes and the beauty of their gardens is captured in every bottle of wine.
They also pipe Baroque music through the vineyards 24×7 and believe that the power of music positively influences the ripening process. At DeMorgenzon, people are totally committed to excellence and focus on crafting wines which express the unique terroir and fruit within a classic structure – they believe that the finest South African wines combine New World-style fruit with Old World-style elegance.
