Quoin Rock

It’s all in a name

The name “Quoin Rock” traces its origins to the Agulhas area, where Quoin Point is the second most southerly point, after Cape Agulhas itself.

In historical Latin terms, ‘quoin rock’ means ‘cornerstone’; the cornerstone being a fundamental piece of the foundation of buildings constructed throughout history. The cornerstone was laid first and set the precedent for where the following stones would be placed and eventually where the building would be erected.

The ‘quoin rock’ displays strength, endurance and timelessness- qualities that inspired our original labels and have proven true of our wines in the developing years. Our promise to you is that these qualities and values will remain evident in the Quoin Rock wines in the years to come.
