The Small Guide: Tanagra Wine Farm
In the wild heart of McGregor at the border of the Klein Karoo, Tanagra is a shaded oasis. Relax under the Faraway Tree, an old wild fig tree that spreads its canopy over the homestead and winery. Owner and distiller Robert Rosenbach will meet you under this tree, and guide you through a wine-tasting, followed by the range of Marc (more commonly known as Grappa) and Eau de Vie (spirits made from macerated fruits). Afterwards, or even before, you can visit the distillery to see where the alchemy happens.
Tanagra Wine Farm
Surrounded by vineyards, fynbos scrub and rocky mountains, Tanagra Wine Farm is the realisation of a dream for owners, Robert and Anette Rosenbach. The German couple settled here in 2009, and finally have a farm to call their own. Here they make sunshine-filled wines, and handcrafted spirits with local provenance.
The Small Things
The Faraway Tree gave 'Tanagra’ its name, it relates to a Khoisan expression that means a ‘well-shaded place’.
