About Skilpadvlei Wine Farm

The Joubert family have owned Skilpadvlei since 1917. The farm name originates from a colony of turtles that was roamed the land.

You’ll find it amongst the vineyards with the Stellenbosch hills in view. To this day, Willie Joubert runs the estate and continues to make fine wines true to the Joubert name.

55 hectares are under vine along with seven hectares of tomato plantations and 3 hectares of olive groves. Cool breezes hit the vineyards in the afternoons and evenings which serves to add flavour to the grapes.

If you would like some South African cuisine with your wine, visit the Skilpadvlei Restaurant. Some of their best dishes include chicken pie, tripe, bobotie, oxtail, steak and the Skilpadvlei burger. You can even build your platter and order from the choice of children’s meals.

Stay indoors beside the fire or out on the veranda in summer. The Chenin Blanc has apple and honeysuckle tones with a tropical fruit nose. It is the perfect easy drinking wine and very refreshing for those hot days. Great to drink immediately or two years later.
