We produce an exclusive range of handcrafted and environmentally friendly wines, typical for the fynbos-scented terroir here at the border of the Klein Karoo. Our vineyards are small blocks with a very low yield and more than 20 years old, all certified as 'Single Vineyards'. They sit right next to Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve, surrounded by wild fynbos and succulent Karoo, and create highly aromatic wines.
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. Likewise, our vineyard mangagement is minimally invasive – we use as much as possible organic components like mulching, compost, organic fertilizer and cover crop and don't use herbicides, helping to retain and nurture our old vineyards and the biodiversity of our farm.
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. We look forward to welcoming you to Tanagra and to introducing you to the wines (& spirits) we produce at Tanagra.
We are open Monday to Saturday by appointment, though feel welcome to pop in without prior arrangement/notice when you are at our gate. If somebody is around, we will assist you with pleasure !
