Welcome To The Tulbagh Winelands
Tulbagh, steeped in history and uniquely Cape Dutch, offers all the modern conveniences that the discerning traveller could desire. Nature lovers, adrenaline junkies, wine lovers, families, and those simply looking for peace and quiet are all catered for.
Tulbagh is surrounded by imposing mountain ranges, with the Obiqua Mountains to the west, the Winterhoek Mountains to the north, and the Witzenberg Mountains to the east. During the hot summer months, the valley’s southern side is open to cooling southeast winds. As a result, Tulbagh has some of the most diverse and appealing viticultural conditions in the Western Cape, and the differences in terroir available to winemakers allow for a wide variety of distinctive wines of excellence, characteristics that have attracted many new producers to the valley.
