Durbanville began as an outspan area named Pampoenkraal that became a meeting place for early travelers, transport riders and local farmers. In time, a small village developed. It was renamed D’Urban after Sir Benjamin D’Urban in 1838, and Durbanville in 1886.
Durbanville Hills winery draws its grapes from a group of neighboring historic farms, mostly established at the turn of the 17th and 18th Centuries.
These include Bloemendal, allocated as a freehold farm in 1698 to an early Dutch settler at the Cape. Most of the other farms involved were allocated as freehold farms during the early 1700s, including Maastricht in 1702, Hooggelegen in 1703 and Ongegund in 1704.
