Mount Vernon Wine Estate is a story of a family from Durban , KwaZulu Natal, who settled here a number of years ago for a change in lifestyle. That change brought a new sense of direction with Debbie Hooper becoming not only one of the few women wine makers in the Cape but also producing exceptional quality wines by virtue of their award winning status.
The secret is the ability to discover, nurture and extract qualities that are unique to Mount Vernon from grape to the final product. This, combined with a true determination to succeed, is what has made Mount Vernon a wine of distinction.
At Mount Vernon it is all about ‘Attention to Detail’ starting with the grape all the way through to the bottle. The cellar produces a limited range of award winning boutique wines that are a result of its handcrafted status.
The Three Peaks range offers exceptional value and affordability. Furthermore a limited more expensive premium range of wines under the Mount Vernon label is aimed at drawing the true potential of each individual vineyard to create wines of exceptional character and beauty.
