Saronsberg consists of two farm portions formerly known as Waveren and Welgegund. The farm originally formed part of the beautiful and historic Twee Jonge Gezellen (TJG) until it was divided between the two Krone brothers in the 1950s. Waveren and Welgegund, which lie on either side of TJG, were acquired in 2002 and renamed after the commanding mountain whose slopes are home to a portion of their vines: Saronsberg
Many Cape wine cellars are housed in wonderful old buildings reflecting the Cape Dutch heritage of the land. However, when the Saronsberg cellar complex was designed and built in 2003, the decision was taken to create a structure that embodied a modern interpretation of the valley`s rich past.
We have great respect for the cultural history of the area and wanted to express that in this, the heart of our production facility. Despite the contemporary design, the architecture incorporates classic Cape Dutch elements that speak of an era that pre-dates us, but still informs our future.
Apart from vineyards, Saronsberg is also in the process of establishing fruit and olive orchards on the more fertile soils, with the aim of diversifying production. The potential for producing premium quality olives and olive oils was confirmed in 2009 when Saronsberg`s first vintage of olive oil was pressed, with aims for commercial release in the near future.
Saronsberg Vineyard Cottages are situated just outside the historic town of Tulbagh on the slopes of the Saronsberg mountains just 120km from Cape Town.
Newly renovated, cosy and well-equipped 1 or 2 bedroom self catering cottages, all with en-suite bathroom, spacious open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area with a high, arched ceiling invite to relax and unwind with friends and family.
