Signal Gun Wines
As the shot of the Signal Gun echoes through the vineyards of our picturesque farm, just off the Vissershok Road in Durbanville, it signals the start of a new generation of wine making.
Owned by the 5th generation De Wit family, we pride ourselves in making small quantities of fine wine from our carefully picked grapes.
Be assured that the tasteful memories of our wines will keep on echoing.
You are invited to our monthly Wine Enthusiast Workshop (previously called Wine & Dinner Club), where you ‘sip, learn and enjoy’ an informative evening with Cape Wine Master and winemaker of Maison de Teijger, Charl van Teijlingen. Charl’s knowledge and love for wine makes him the perfect choice as presenter.
This month the workshop will be about “PINOT NOIR”. This cultivar may be the toughest grape to grow, but the effort is often well worth the constant care and investment. It is a fickle grape that demands optimum growing conditions, opting for warm days consistently supported by cool evenings. As for style, Pinot Noir is typically a lighter-medium bodied, fruit-forward red wine.
Once the presentation and blind tasting of at least 10 wines is concluded, there will be a 3 course meal prepared with the ‘cultivar of the evening’ in mind. You can order any wine off the Ke-Monate Wine Bar & Bistro wine list to accompany your meal, for your own account.

The cost is R210 per person and booking is essential as seats are limited. Kindly call us on Tel: +27.219767343 or email Heidi on to reserve your seat.
