Signal Gun
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.

Save the date: Our 3rd Birthday Festival is on the 26th & 27th of October Wine garden | Beer | Crafters | Kiddies Entertainment | Live Entertainment by Newton & co.

New Releases of the Signal Gun Boutique wines and much more.
