Take a tour of the Township Winery and taste some truly special wines.

A craft does not take a lot of money to learn and to perfect, nor does it have to happen in a mansion. The communities of Nyanga, Khayalitsha and Philippi know that the wine craft is as simple as any other craft. They have proved that growing and caring for vines is no more difficult than tending other plants and that wine can be made and cared for with sensitivity and hygiene in a shed in the same way that thousands of garagistes make wine at home all over the world. The idea of a non-elite winery, owned and staffed by a different culture, was formed in 2009. In 2010, The Township Winery concept was revealed and spotted by Virgin Wines in the United Kingdom, who commissioned the first wines. After that, the Philippi soils were analysed for suitability and found to be pH neutral, perfect for vineyards. The first Cape Flats vines in 70 years were planted in 2011. Come visit this special winery, take a tour and taste some of this unique wine.
