A treasured national monument, the historic Twee Jonge Gezellen farm in Tulbagh – the home of leading MCC Krone – has recently undergone a sensitive restoration and renovation directed by siblings Abigail and Sven Rands.
Newly re-opened to the public, the al fresco Tasting Deck and adjoining Tasting Room now boast stylish, custom-made accessories and key pieces of South African furniture design by the likes of Gregor Jenkin, Wiid Design and Meyer Von Wielligh, thanks to the project’s creative director Tracy Lynch of Studio Lee Lynch.
Vistors can journey through a series of extraordinary spaces that are filled with contemporary art, sculpture and collectible design, before moving on to sample Krone’s one-vintage-only MCC. Tastings are complimentary and the setting is extraordinary. The raised terrace offers singular views out over the picturesque valley and onto the nearby Winterhoek, Witzenberg and Obiqua Mountains, while the Tasting Room boasts a dramatic picture window that unveils the workings of the cellar.
The Tasting Room and Deck are open Monday-Friday from 10h00-16h00, and on Saturdays from 10h00 to 14h00. Cellar Tours are available Monday-Saturday from 10h00 to 16h00.
