Wine of South Africa

Featuring Johan Malan, Chief Winemaker/Co-Owner of Simonsig

Join us for an exclusive wine seminar, presented by Simonsig, on Friday, April 21 as we explore the wines of South Africa. Special guest Johan Malan will present several wines from the Simonsig Wine Estate, which is devoted to producing terroir-driven wines that express the unique character of Stellenbosch.

Named after the majestic views of the Simonsberg Mountain, Simonsig Estate is situated in the famous Stellenbosch Winelands just 45 km east of Cape Town. Since French Huguenot Jacques Malan first set foot in the Cape in 1688, the Malan family’s wine knowledge accumulated over many generations and has equipped them to excel as one of the leading private producers of estate wines in South Africa.

The late Frans Malan, beloved patriarch of the Malan Family and one of the pioneers of the South African wine industry, was not only a craftsman of superior wines but also introduced numerous Simonsig ‘firsts’, cementing the estate’s stately legacy in the Cape Winelands. 

After more than 30 Simonsig vintages, current cellar master Johan Malan continues the family’s pioneering spirit with his own impressive lineage of award winning wines.
