Tanagra is a boutique wine cellar situated in the McGregor valley (on the Robertson Road) producing only small amounts of high quality, handcrafted and unique red wines. There are 12.5 ha of vines under cultivation, mainly noble red wine varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinotage) as well as white Colombar (known to grow so well in the McGregor valley).
Our wines all mature in small French oak barrel. The 2003 to 2006 red wines (great specials currently available) are all blends (CabSauv led) and have been made using traditional methods like whole berry and natural yeast fermentation. Winemaker in charge is currently John Hargreaves from Wolfdoring Wines, McGregor, who started making the Tanagra wines from the 2007 harvest.
Extended and relaxed wine-tastings with a lunch under the magnificent old wild fig tree on request (booking essential).
