The Story of The Township Winery

Original and Beautiful

What they lack in size and scale, the Philippi wine community replaces with passion and commitment. Starting over with nothing more than the land under their homes and a lifetime apprenticeship in growing plants, they tend their vines with new pride and dignity, bringing shades of green to the street and fruit to the common effort.

Changing Paradigms

Cape Town families are changing the way we see wine. In recent times, the wine world has become very commercial, but in Cape Town this is changing through a unique project. Single household vineyards and community-owned central winery in the middle of the townships, that’s new.

Taste the pride

The best grapes have no favourites. After years of open competition, all producers now know where to find the best grapes. All township growers share in the grower co-operative that is a shareholder in The Township Winery. They produce the organic grapes and vegetables and man the stalls stocked with crafts, art and wine at the Winery.
