It’s all about location

Durbanville Hills Wine Estate


The unique location of Durbanville Hills cellar, a mere 10-minute flight from Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront, offers a spectacular view of Table Mountain and Table Bay. Although the Durbanville area is renowned for its Sauvignon Blanc which excels under the cool conditions where it is grown, mostly on the cool south-facing slopes, the range of red wines also benefit from the warmer valley outskirts and opposing northern slopes.

Arrive in style with Cape Town Helicopters at Durbanville Hills. Durbanville Hills offers tastings of its Collectors Reserve range or Cellar Door exclusive wines; you can taste the range of wines on their own or paired with either chocolate or biltong. End your day with a food experience at the state-of-the-art winery and restaurant, and enjoy a delicious meal, and enjoy a glass of the extraordinary Durbanville Hills wines.

Please note: All tastings, pairings, refreshments, and luncheons are for your own account.

We had the most amazing experience with our pilot Franco. We had a private chartered flight to Durbanville Hills Wine estate where we had a fabulous lunch with excellent service. We then had an equally amazing return trip back to Cape Town via a fly round Robben Island. Franco was fantastic and full of information about the area. We can highly recommend using this company.

I Booked a flight with Cape Town Helicopters for me and my family for a flight to Durbanville Hills Wine Estate. Our Pilot was Mauritz and he gave us an excellent tour and answered all our question very professionally. He is an amazing pilot and I can recommend him anytime. Thanks again to the whole team for a great experience from entering the door at Cape Town Helicopters to fetching us from the Wine Estate again. The company is very professional and highly recommended and we will be back for more.

Keep these in mind

Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot. We do offer In Flight Video packages where we record you and your flight, including audio, and put it on a USB for you. Note that not all aircraft has this system available so please requests this on check in.


Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.


All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
