The Flagstone wine making operation started in a run-down shell of an old depot in Cape Town harbour – it was South Africa’s first urban winery. In 2002, our production outgrew the location and Flagstone moved to an old dynamite factory in Somerset West. Every bottle of Flagstone wine is handcrafted, and so too is the label. Each product has its own unique story, with evocative tales ranging from myths of flying dragons to an allegory of a wild card – the dark horse. Our core supplying vineyards under management stretch from the southernmost wine growing area in South Africa, Elim, to one of the most easterly vineyard sites high in the Swartberg Mountains to the Breede River valley, north of Cape Town.
