Bilton Wines

Rare Wines of Distinctive Character

Stretching 377 hectares up the majestic Helderberg Mountains, Bilton is an old-world wine estate, ideally situated in the famed Stellenbosch wine region of South Africa. The gracious combination of our ideal location and fruitful terroir enable us to produce award-winning, boutique wines that are as rich and as complex as the berries from which they’re made.

The estate has been in the hands of the Bilton family since 1959, when Don Bilton bought the land. For more than 30 years the farming activities at Bilton, with its prime location on the foothills of the Helderberg, were centred around growing fruit, vegetables and grapes until 1996 when Mark Bilton took over the responsibilities from his father.

Rare wines of distinctive character are produced from the Matt Black red, the flagship bordeaux style blend Sir Percy and the most expensive red wine in South Africa known as The Bilton.
