Tulbagh

The Cape’s most perfect pastoral getaway


Escape Cape Town and take a 90-minute scenic drive to Tulbagh, a tiny rural town tucked away among delicate fynbos and a series of rugged mountain ranges. Tulbagh’s old-world charm and natural beauty have made it one of South Africa’s most sought-after wedding destinations. And then, of course, the region is also exceedingly popular for its wines.

In 1969, Tulbagh was hit by an earthquake that destroyed every historic house on one of its streets. Each and every one of these houses has now been lovingly restored, making Tulbagh the town with the highest concentration of national monuments on a single street. The town also offers activities for keen outdoorsmen and nature lovers: fresh-water fishing, hiking, horse riding, mountain-biking, and even a malaria-free Big 5 experience at a nearby nature reserve are only a few of the thrilling things to do in Tulbagh.

Despite chilly winters and steamy summers, Tulbagh’s Mediterranean-like climate and varied terroir have made the region well-suited for wine farming. Chenin blanc, shiraz, and cabernet sauvignon are among the signature cultivars here but the region’s Methode Cap Classique wines (South African sparkling wines made in the traditional champagne-style) are also popular.
