Welcome to Manley Wine Lodge.
We are situated on the award winning boutique wine farm, Manley Private Cellar, which is located on the outskirts of the picturesque and historic Cape Winelands town of Tulbagh.
Manley Wine Lodge is a stunning venue created in the French Provincial style with views of lakes and the spectacular Winterhoek mountains as a backdrop.
Relax in style with specially selected wines from around the world, the best views in the world and nestled in the softest cotton money can buy.
Tulbagh is located in the Winelands just over a hours scenic drive from Cape Town. The emphasis is on wine appreciation in the most beautiful of locations with wholesome food that compliments this fusion of flavours.
Our first vines were planted in 1999. Our mission was to create the best, hand nurtured red wines possible.
Have we succeeded? The experts certainly think so as Manley has won a number of prestigious awards including the Grand Prix prize as the top wine at 2004 International Michelangelo awards and the South African ABSA Bank top 10 award for 2004 Pinotage.
As the Cape Argus newspaper said Manley Private Cellar, the new kid on the block has cleaned-up. High praise indeed
We suggest you spend 2-3 nights here with us and use Manley Wine Lodge as your base to explore some wonderful beaches, spring flowers, bird watching, golf courses, fine wines along with elegant cuisine and game reserves all within an hour or so drive from Tulbagh.
