Biodiversity Initiative at Simonsig
In order to ensure a sustainable handling with nature, Simonsig is part of the Biodiversity Initiative. The winery grows a range of different grape varieties to have a great spectrum of plants in the region and to use the natural resources optimally. This is another example of the winemakers' expertise, who succeed in combining the different grape varieties every year - and this of a constant high quality. Additionally, Simonsig is active in preservation of native plants such as the Fynbos.
Simonsig Wine Relies on its Winemakers
A true Simonsig wine only becomes possible with the expertise of the winemakers. This is why the yard attaches great importance to highly trained winemakers and wine growers, who accompany the cultivation and maturing process of the wine with much love and knowledge.
Simonsig Located Ideally
The winery Simonsig is located 45 kilometres away from Cape Town and belongs to the region Stellenbosch. This area counts as one of South Africa's best wine regions according to many experts; no other region's yard produces as many premium wines as they do here. This is not surprising, as Stellenbosch and therefore vineyards such as Simonsig benefit from the ideal location. Soils are full of minerals and supply the vines with precious nutrients due to sufficient rainfall, whilst the breeze from the Atlantic makes for the required cooling.
