Tulbagh Wine Estates

South Africa is abounding in little treasures, nestled amongst mountains ranges and in valleys that need to be explored to be appreciated fully. Tulbagh is one of these gems, as it lies secluded in the Tulbagh Basin, with mountains surrounding it at every turn. Due to this positioning, Tulbagh is susceptible to extreme weather conditions. Summers can reach upwards of 35 degrees Celsius, while winter snow on the mountain caps is common.

While these conditions may be a challenge for the locals, they are perfect for the hardy vines that grow throughout the Tulbagh Wine Route. There are cool summer winds, and a variety in the terroir and micro-climates, which makes for the ideal conditions for an array of wine types. The valley has plenty in the way of water supply, meaning that there is an ideal irrigation system in place. Therefore, there are also olive groves and fruit orchards to complement the vineyards for a palate sensation.

The wineries of Tulbagh range from intimate homely cellars that produce honest wines to boutique estates known for their award-winning labels. Twee Jongen Gezellen is known for being the first night harvesting estate in the country. Soon afterwards, a number of other local wine farms followed suit. With this profile of wine estates, Tulbagh remains a firm favourite among connoisseurs and the man-on-the-street alike.
