Generations of
Winemaking Excellence

Our wine making tradition is rooted in our commitment to consistently produce wines of international standards, to be enjoyed by all.

With the 3rd generation Malan family at the helm of this abundant Stellenbosch farm in the Western Cape, Simonsig is a proud wine producer underpinned by true Cape hospitality and driven by strong family values.

Cultivated Excellence


More About Us

Three generations of the malan legacy

Simonsig Wine Estate is synonymous with the history of the South African wine industry, the Stellenbosch wine region, and the Malan family name. These elements are intertwined in this family-owned farm, where the late Frans Malan produced the first bottle of our much-loved Kaapse Vonkel, South Africaʼs first Méthode Cap Classique made in the classic bottle-fermented style. He is also honoured for co-founding the thriving Stellenbosch Wine Route, a first in its time. Today, his legacy lives on through his sons, Francois and Johan, and grandchildren Francois-Jacques, Christelle and Michael, the 2nd and 3rd Malan generations at Simonsig Wine Estate.
