About Durbanville Hills Collectors Reserve Range
Durbanville began as an “outspan” (resting place) area named Pampoenkraal that became a meeting place for early travellers, transport riders and local farmers. In 1685, one of the farms in the area, Roosboom, so impressed Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel that he noted it for posterity.
At the time of his trip, the first farmers had been in the region around the spring and the pan for over twenty years. The spring became a popular resting place during the early 18th century. Travellers to and from the coast would stop here to replenish water and food supplies, creating a demand for fresh meat and a market for cattle farmers. Soon cattle farming was supplemented with wheat production. Not long after, the first vineyards were planted and within a decade most farmers were producing enough wine for themselves and their dependants.
As early as 1702 the first surplus of wine was recorded among the producers and could very well have resulted in the first sales of wine from the region. This small village developed over time and was named Durbanville in 1886.
Inspired by Cape Town’s radiant energy and creative demeanour, our new premium offering – The Collector’s Reserve – is a unique range specially crafted by our winemakers using only the finest grapes from Cape Town’s best vineyards.

About David Delaney
Originally from Waterford city, Ireland, David Delaney has quickly established himself as one of the most versatile and in-demand wedding music violinists and event musicians in South Africa. Coming from a highly musical family (his father, Ben, is the lead vocalist of the well-known Irish folk band, Drops of Brandy), he was immersed in Irish music for as long as he remembers. Having started on the Irish penny-whistle at the age of seven, he graduated up to the more difficult violin, specialising in Celtic and French-Canadian fiddle music.
He did not follow the conventional wedding music path, completing his Honours Degree in Business Studies and German, followed by a Masters Degree (M.Sc. Hons) in Interactive Media. In 2010, he located to Australia and toured as lead soloist for the hugely successful “Rhythms of Ireland” Irish dance show throughout Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland. What was initially a stopover in Johannesburg turned into a permanent love affair for the country! Delaney now performs throughout the country as a highly sought after wedding music and event musician, both as a solo artist and with various, well known musical groups from Gauteng.
In a short space of time, David has been involved in many facets of the SA music industry, from performing with Sonja Herholdt, playing onstage in the stage version of Arthur Millar’s “The Crucible”, to recording on the soundtrack for the recent South African movie, “Babalas”. He has recently released a full studio album, with the popular folk duo, “Beukes and Delaney”, whose compositions can be heard on radio stations across the country. David is available as a wedding violinist throughout South Africa.
David Delaney possesses a spellbinding ability to push his instruments to the limit, giving the violin and flute new avenues of expression, while complimenting his bands steady core and vocals, with beautiful harmonies and iconic motifs.
