Nestled in the Tulbagh Valley, at the foot of the embracing Witzenberg Mountains stands the stately Drostdy-Hof cellar and home; built over two centuries ago it was designed by renowned architect Louis Michel Thibault. The Drostdy Wine Cellar, located close to the historic town of Tulbagh, was established in 1964 at the foot of the Winterhoek Mountains. The brand takes its name from Tulbagh’s old magistrate’s building, De Oude Drostdy, a national monument dating back to 1804. Drostdy-Hof wines are well-known for their inviting flavours and upfront fruitiness. Each bottle of Drostdy-Hof is an authentic cape wine, both in style and taste. There are no hidden surprises. The wines in the range are consistently true to their roots. Drostdy-Hof wines are well known for delivering both good value and varietal typicity. They have long-established relationships with growers that farm some of the Cape Coastal region’s prime vineyard sites.
