ABOUT US

Jason’s Hill Private Cellar is tucked away in the heart of the Boland at the foot of the Slanghoek Mountains. 

With its fertile soil and Mediterranean climate the very best of grapes are produced for making award-winning wines.

It is in this ideal setting that Ivy Du Toit, one of South Africa’s pioneer woman winemaker’s, and her family are keeping alive the tradition of vine growing and wine making that was started by their ancestors in 1844.

Ivy’s interest in winemaking became clear at a young age when she started spending her time curiously investigating the activities at a nearby cellar.  It was, however, only after harvest seasons in America, France, and Italy that she decided to try her own hand at winemaking.

In an old garage on the farm, with grapes from dad, Sakkie’s, produce and barrels bought with her savings money, Ivy made her maiden Shiraz in 2001.  Everything from the picking, destemming and bottling was done by hand.

It was not long before Ivy reapt the success of her hard work and she was named Diner’s Club Young Winemaker of the Year 2003 and Landbou Weekblad Woman Winemaker of the Year 2004.

Today Ivy is living her dream of producing multi-award winning wines and sharing it with visitors from across the globe, making every visit to Jason’s Hill a memorable experience.
