Quoin Rock got its name from Quoin Point in the Agulhas region which happens to be the second most southerly point of Africa after Cape Agulhas.

When the owner of the two farms, Doug Murdoch and winemaker Rodney Easthope had a meeting, the name was decided. In Latin, ‘quoin rock’ means ‘ cornerstone’, of which you’ll find many in the ‘Cave’s’ structure at the wine cellar in Stellenbosch. The original design of the wine labels took their cue from this and symbolise endurance, strength and timelessness. Due to the soils with high red clay content, this region was once dubbed the ‘Clay Hole’.

In 1998, the land was bought from Knorhoek wine estate. In 2000, old vines and pear orchards were removed and vines replanted commenced for two years and the wine cellar and manor house were built. 45 Ha were planted under vine consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Mouvedre and Sauvignon Blanc cultivars. With Rodney Easthope as winemaker, the first grapes from the Agulhas farm were pressed in 2001. Ten years later, the first female winemaker assumed the position. Pop into this spectacular estate for a cellar tour and wine tasting.
