The farm derives its charming name from the legendary colony of turtles that was found on the land in the 1800’s. Skilpadvlei has been in the hands of the Joubert family since 1917. Today, fourth generation Willie Joubert upholds the proud family tradition of harnessing the rich potential of the land with a dedicated commitment to quality.
Skilpadvlei is a fully operational farm with 55 of the 78ha under vineyards, 3ha olive groves and 7ha tomato plantations.
Facilities include a farm style restaurant, wedding and conference venues, accommodation and wine tasting.
This versatile farm is fast becoming one of the most popular family destinations.
