About Hill&Dale

Hill&Dale wines are made at the Stellenzicht cellar from grapes harvested from vineyards around Stellenbosch, arguably the most famous wine region in South Africa, known for its exceptional quality.

The History of Hill&Dale
Our wines
have their home at Stellenzicht, one of the oldest vineyards in the Stellenbosch Winelands.

Stellenzicht's legacy dates back to the pioneering history of the Cape when it was granted to its first owner, Barendt Hendrikse, as part of a much bigger farm in 1692.

The first Hill&Dale wines hit the market in 2001 and have been growing their following ever since. We created these wines with the view to bring wine lovers estate quality wines at supermarket prices and we think that we've surpassed the expectations set out by this brief.

The name, Hill&Dale, is a direct translation from the Afrikaans "Bergendal" which was a previous range of wines produced at Stellenzicht Vineyards in the 1990s. Due to the difficulties which some international markets had with the pronunciation of the "Bergendal" name, it was decided to change the name to Hill&Dale - which is very easily recognised and pronounced in most countries of the world. The name also points to the name of one of the properties, Hillandale, from where fruit is sourced for the making of these wines.

The Stellenbosch Winelands

Stellenbosch is considered one of South Africa's most prestigious winemaking regions. Its Winelands are located between the False Bay coast to the south and Paarl to the north and the region enjoys a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters. A rich diversity of soils and altitudes and cooling summer breezes from the ocean make it ideal for the cultivation of top quality wine grapes and the birthplace of many an award-winning wine.
