The Legacy of Simonsig

The name Simonsig is renowned throughout the wine world as an established and leading South African wine estate.

Named after the majestic views of the Simonsberg Mountain, Simonsig Estate is situated in the famous Stellenbosch Winelands region, 45 km east of Cape Town.

French Huguenot, Jacques Malan, first set foot in the Cape in 1688.
The late Frans Malan, Simonsig’s founding father, was a pioneer of the South African wine industry. A true visionary, Frans introduced new and innovative wine styles to the country, thereby establishing a unique and specific Cape wine culture.

Two generations of the Malan family have applied their extensive wine knowledge and understanding of the unique soils and climate conditions of the Stellenbosch region, capturing the essence of this specific terroir in a range of distinguished red and white wines. Today, Simonsig’s awarded wines are known and appreciated in South Africa and all over the world.
