TANAGRA is a working wine farm situated next to Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve. We offer comfortable accommodation in well appointed guest cottages, produce handcrafted wines and stylish Grappa and Eau de Vie. An old wild fig tree gave the farm its name, ‘Tanagra’ – it echoes the Khoisan expression for a well-shaded place. This giant tree canopies the historic homestead and winery, providing welcoming shade during the hot days of summer.

Come and stay with us in one of our private cottages, explore the farm and taste our wines and spirits right where they are produced – agritourism at its best.

Enjoy  the beautiful landscapes, mountain views and sunsets, and experience life on a working farm. Tanagra offers 6 self-catering apartments and cottages, some situated at the main farm, close to the historic homestead (Garden cottage, Loft studio, Bottlebrush, Gumtree), with a swimming pool in the garden, others are tucked away in the wild fynbos of the surrounding hills (Hill cottage, Faraway), with private plunge pools.

The best thing to do is to simply rest and unwind with a good book and a glass of wine in the garden or on your stoep, and explore the farm for walks or to watch birds which are there in abundance. Tanagra farm is 78ha in size and for most parts accessible by various walking/hiking trails (also great for mountain-biking) ranging from a leisurely 10 minutes’ walk to a couple of hours’ hike.  Wine & Grappa Tasting available on the farm (booking essential).
