Simonsig Estate upholds the legendary status of pioneering wine excellence shaped by the Malan dynasty’s devotion to quality and innovative winemaking.
Named after its dramatic views of the Simonsberg Mountain, the estate is ideally situated in Stellenbosch, South Africa’s premier wine region, 45 km east of Cape Town. Here the cool maritime Mediterranean climate and quintessential terroir flawlessly intertwine to create world class wines.
Since French Huguenot Jacques Malan first set foot in the Cape Winelands in 1688, the knowledge imparted over more than ten generations has equipped the Malan family to excel as one of the leading private producers of estate wines in South Africa.
From humble beginnings on the De Hoop farm in 1953 and inspired by Frans Malan’s foresight and quest for unsurpassed quality, Simonsig has grown into a successful family business with a proud heritage.
His ground-breaking innovations include South Africa’s first Méthode Cap Classique, Kaapse Vonkel more than 30 years ago – bottle fermented sparkling wine made in the style of French champagne – as well as the first South African Rhine Riesling and wooded whites.
A legendary landmark in its own right, Simonsig continues to reap rewards for its extensive range of formidable red, white and sparkling wines, as the Malan family winemaking legacy lives on.
In Tanzania, Simonsig Wine Estate is represented by Jos. Hansen & Soehne (Tanzania) Limited.
