We produce an exclusive range of handpicked and handcrafted wines, with a focus on single-vineyard wines, typical for the fynbos-scented terroir here at the border of the Klein Karoo. Our vineyards are small blocks and more than 20 years old. They sit right next to Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve, surrounded by wild fynbos and succulent Karoo, and create highly aromatic wines.
Our wine-making philosophy is guided by the principle of ‘minimal interference’. We use traditional methods like natural yeasts (no enzymes added) and whole berry fermentation and mature our wines in neutral vessels. All this helps to retain the natural & distinct character of our single vineyard wines. As no animal based products are being used our wines are vegan-friendly. Likewise, our vineyard mangagement is minimally invasive – we are using as much as possible organic components like mulching, organic fertilizer and cover crop. Wine-maker in charge is Lourens van der Westhuizen.
Wine and Grappa tastings
Come and visit us for a unique and personal wine tasting or grappa tasting experience at Tanagra. Our philosophy is to personally introduce visitors to the farm, the winery and the Tanagra wines (and Grappas, for those interested) and we regard tastings as encounters rather than standardized procedures. The distillery is always an interesting visit.
You are most welcome to visit us for a tasting whenever you see our gate open (usually Monday - Friday from 9h00 - 13h00 and 14h00- 16h00, Saturday from 10h00 - 15h00 and Sunday from 10h00 - 13h00).
To avoid disappointment it is advisable to phone (023 625 1780) to make sure that someone is around.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
