As a promising newcomer in the Klein Karoo wine region,  Hillock Wines of Ladismith, launched its first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and the Hillock personality blend, Barrel Roll, in 2011


Hillock Wines is located just off Route 62, on the farm Mymering in the fertile Dwarsrivier Valley at the foot of the Towerkop mountains. The farm is surrounded by nature reserves, including the Towerkop and Anysberg reserves.


Andy Hillock is a well-known surgeon from Port Elizabeth who together with partner, viticulturist Riaan Steyn, built up the Hillock Vineyard over many years of hard work. The 55ha farm started out as a table grape and fruit farm – but today it is also home to blocks of  Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz and Ruby Cabernet.









Andy has three great passions in life: medicine, flying and farming. As a young man he flew Harvards in the air force. Next came his career as a surgeon. And finally it was time to pursue his third dream: farming to make wine.


All Hillock Wines are made, bottled and labelled at Mymering, Mymering is a working guest farm with four star guest accommodation. Each unit is themed with stylish interiors, and is equipped with private plunge pools  or an outdoor Jacuzzi under the Karoo stars.
