Places to drink....

Fascinating places to visit, places to eat and people who offer unique products and services in the McGregor.

"Amazing diversity."

"Consistent quality."

"Great value for money."

All expressions that best describe the wines and spirits that flow from the farms and cellars of the McGregor valley .

This little route can be compared to a jewelled necklace, along which a handful of farms and cellars perch as gems waiting to be unearthed.

The winemakers, viticulturists and farmers (sometimes all-in-one) share qualities like talent, passion and hospitality – the old adage, ‘arrive as strangers, leave as friends’ – could have been coined especially for this valley.

Welcome to The McGregor Wine Meander, a slow and winding 15km route through vine-clad hills, past orchards, farmsteads and between stretches of veld where nature rules supreme. After leaving the village the road climbs to the foothills of the Sonderend mountains, where the final destination boasts heart-stopping views over the valley.

Tanagra Wines

Robert and Anette Rosenbach took over Tanagra in 2009, when they came to South Africa from Germany. They have restored the farm and now produce handcrafted wines in a boutique wine cellar and stylish Grappa and Eau de Vie in thier distillery with a still that they brought with them from Germany. The old wild fig tree gave the farm its name, 'Tanagra' - it echoes the Khoisan expression for a well-shaded place.

Most of the 78ha farm is accessible by various walking/hiking trails (also great for mountain biking) with access into the Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve with longer bird-walks and mountain trails. The area offers a variety of activities and seasonal festivals for you to enjoy. Get in touch if you want a home from home farm experience.
