A hidden gem, tucked between Kanonkop and Paarl Mountain, Noble Hill produces single-vineyard estate wines, made to reflect the soil, climate and geology of the Simonsberg area. Using beetles and ducks for pest control instead of chemicals, and nitrogen-enriching cover crops instead of fertilizer, the result is a sustainable ecosystem that supports diverse flora and fauna.
The estate is named after Noble Hill, a rocky outcropping that rises behind the vineyard, its strata serving as a gentle reminder of that which has not changed since the farm was established in 1674. The Noble Hill Merlot 2005, grown on estate vines and harvested by hand from a single block, was recently awarded Double Gold at the Veritas Wine Awards, the Cabernet Sauvignon a Silver, and the 1674 Blend a Bronze. The estate is open for wine-tasting and sales seven days a week, and is also home to cosecha, a Latin-American inspired restaurant.
