Tulbagh Wine Estates
Tulbagh is the most northerly district of the Cape Winelands and our wines are regularly awarded gold medals and accolades around the world. Tulbagh enjoys some of the most diverse and ideal conditions for viticulture in the Cape Winelands. There are many fine wine estates in the Tulbagh valley, which are open to the public for wine tastings, sales and cellar tours. Tulbagh Wine Route's terroir has been recognised as amongst the finest in the country. The following wine estates are our personal favourites, and are less than a five-minute drive from the Quarter while the other wine estates are listed in the 'Useful Links' box to the right.
SARONSBERG, TULBAGH WINE ROUTE
Under the mighty mountains that bear her name, Saronsburg Wine Estate leapt onto the map in 1997, and deservedly has become one of the most popular wine estates in the Tulbagh valley. The contemporary cellar is an architectural gem and has a beautifully finished tasting room. Set in gardens beside a lake, also don't miss the permanent modern art and sculpture exhibition, and other seasonal exhibits. The wines are award-winning reds and whites. Don't miss the Saronsburg Full Circle and Provenance 'Rooi'.
