A beautiful pioneering wine estate in the middle of nowhere at the end of a long, dusty, bumpy road at the Southern tip of Africa.

When David and Rita Trafford visited the Malgas region for the first time in 2000, they were blown away with the incredible soils specifically in the Lemoentuin area and immediately set about finding a suitable property to purchase.

Today, Sijnn Wines are grown in Malgas along the Breede River - the only first growth appellation in the region.

At Sijnn, everything we do revolves around our unique location and terroir. We believe in natural farming and natural winemaking, and focus our skills on blending Mediterranean-style varieties that are best suited to our climate.
