Schalkenbosch Wine Estate

The Schalkenbosch vineyards are situated high up on the slopes of the Witzenberg mountain range overlooking the picturesque Tulbagh valley. The soils are similar to those found in the Rhone Valley in France and the vineyards enjoy a unique micro-climate. A late sunrise is due to the shadow of the mountain.

My husband and I did a last minute booking for New Years and were so impressed with this comfortable and homely cottage. Just what we needed to get away from the city life. Beautiful scenery and our hosts, Emmeric and Gregen, were so welcoming and accommodating. We even ended up extending our stay by a night.

Unbelievable setting. Service was great. The full circle, which is available for tasting, is probably the best red I have ever had.

We had the wine tasting in the forest, surrounded by butterflies and birds, absolutely beautiful!! Wines are well presented by Emanuel. Also had their cheese board that was really good. There are a few places to taste wine at here, I suggest to do it in the forest. Well done!

Although we are the only guests here, the wines and the midday views of the working vineyard are spectacular. The wines are sublime, although I requested a spittoon, I am yet to use it. Just a reminder of the quality of wines and venues the cape has to offer, even if we have to still sport masks in this new normal environment. #winediary #coviddiary #2020 #tulbagh #capewines

Walk through the old cellars, cool with whole tree trunks for eaves and climb up to a modern tasting room with stunning views of the mountain. Two tasting options - R50 and R100. Comfie couches and delicious bubbles made for a very pleasant afternoon
