Axe Hill was started by the late Tony Mossop and wife Lyn, at a remote site on the outskirts of Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo during 1993. The name of the vineyard originates from the stone hand tools found on the farm and used by pre-historic man over a quarter of a million years ago. Calitzdorp is a viticulture area situated in the Klein Karoo Wine Region. The area has been acclaimed for its fortified wines for a number of years and Calitzdorp is known as “the Port Capital of South Africa”. The unique micro-climate prevalent in the region is typically characterized by dry, arid conditions which add to the overall concentration of true Portuguese varietals. Maiden Vintage - the 1997 Axe Hill Cape Vintage Port was awarded 5 stars in the prestigious John Platter Wine Guide. Of the subsequent nine vintages released, six have been awarded 5 stars by the Platter’s South African Wine Guide.
