Wine to me is a passion. It's family and friends. It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It's culture. It's the essence of civilization and the heart of living.

— Robert Mondavi

Tulbagh is the smallest wine region in South Africa and is also well known for its scenery and fertile basin. It is here where the boutique wine farm, Lemberg Wine Estate, is nestled – surrounded by the views of the Witzenberg en Winterhoek Mountains – 120km northeast of Cape Town and 5km south of the historic Tulbagh town.

Established in 1978 by legendary winemaker Janey Muller, Lemberg became known for its Sauvignon Blanc and Hárslevelü. The name originates from Lemberg, Poland – now known as Lviv, Ukraine, after the change of borders – where her husband was born.

Since it’s purchase in 2007, the boutique estate has seen development in the vineyard and the cellar. Now boasting a production capacity of 100tons and additional plantings of Pinot noir, Grenache noir, Pinotage and Syrah, with the original Sauvignon blanc still producing excellent fruit, planting Viognier and the ever-fascinating Hungarian cultivar Hárslevelü.

The consistent pace for perfection, patience and passion still drive the duo Henk du Bruyn and Suzette Jansen van Rensburg to further the labour of love that is Lemberg. This philosophy is achieved by the underlying energy of teamwork that drives the force and success of Lemberg.

The endearing English bulldogs – Nelson, Rose, Ella and Louis who are always eager to welcome visitors at the tasting room – in the footsteps and memory of Spencer and Lady.

To quote our winemaker, MC Stander, a graduate from Stellenbosch University: “In making wine we need to have fun and work with a positive energy, and even more so with making natural wine! We should reflect the character of the varietal, the soil and the region as naturally as possible.”

Excellent wine - friendly staff and awesome bulldogs - highly recommend the pinot noir and the white blanc de noir.


Beautiful scenery. We were welcomed by the beautiful 4 bulldogs on the farm. Great that it was pet-friendly for our 4 month old puppy. (That we have arranged beforehand)


A jewel to visit. The wines are all excellent and very reasonably priced. They also have a delicious platter which we enjoyed next to the farm dam with the most beautiful views. We will definitely be back.
