Theuniskraal, one of the town of Tulbagh’s best-known wine farms and South Africa’s very first white-wine estate, has a history as interesting, and as old, as the village itself. Situated some 120 km from Cape Town, Tulbagh is the centre of one of South Africa’s oldest agricultural regions.
According to tradition, three families settled in the picturesque Tulbagh valley in 1699. One of the families had a son named Theunis who was granted land to the north of the village. His property was originally named Theuniskuyl, but by 1785, when vines were already being cultivated there, the name had changed to Theuniskraal.
