The Tulbagh valley has always been celebrated for the beauty of its setting and the historical significance of its town. In more recent times, wine has moved centre stage and visitors to the valley can now enjoy a wide range of wines from the various estates and private cellars wines that have received a string of national and international awards including Diners Club Wine Maker of the Year, a healthy spread of gold and double gold Veritas awards, and numerous others. Tulbagh has always been innovative in its approach to wine making, with Twee Jonge Gezellen being the first estate to introduce night harvesting in South Africa, a concept now employed by many producers throughout the Cape.Read more
The secluded Tulbagh valley is surrounded on three sides by the Groot Winterhoek, Witzenberg and Obiqua mountains. The town of Tulbagh boasts 32 provincial monuments on one street and the surrounding vineyards grow alongside orchards and fields of wheat. The wine route is dotted with graceful old estates, interspersed with conspicuously new vineyards and architecturally designed state-of-the-art cellars, as well as a handful of micro-producers and boutique wineries. Here history and tradition work hand-in-hand with innovation. Today’s high-tech water management and advanced viticultural practices are ensuring that the true potential of this area is starting to be realised.Explore
