Tanagra Wine & Guest Farm
is an idyllic wine farm close to McGregor and part of the Robertson Wine Route and Route 62. We offer comfortable accommodation in well appointed guest cottages, and produce handcrafted wines in a boutique wine cellar and stylish Grappa and Eau de Vie in our boutique distillery.
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 farm products right where they are produced - agri-tourism at its best.
Tanagra is the ideal place for the wine and nature lover seeking an authentic and peaceful countryside experience in a naturally elegant and laid-back farm ambiance - home from home on a working farm in McGregor.

Tanagra offers 4 cottages/units that are part of the main farm (Bottlebrush, Gumtree, Garden cottage, Loft studio), with a lawned garden, lots of trees and a pool in the garden, and 2 cottages that are tucked away from the main farm, situated in wild Karoo veld (Hill cottage, Faraway), with private plunge pools. Except Faraway, which has 2 bedrooms and can sleep 4 persons, all cottages/units sleep 2.

There are more activities to explore in the Robertson Wine Valley (10 to 15 minutes away), offering an abundance of wine estates to visit and other activities (boat cruises on the Breede River, olive oil tastings, etc.).
