TWEE JONGE GEZELLEN
Krone Vintage Cap Classique is created on the historical Twee Jonge Gezellen farm, a fusion of heritage and innovation. The grapes are night harvested in the beautiful Tulbagh valley, flanked by rugged mountains. The vineyards reach up the east-facing slopes of the Saron Peak, while the underground cellar lies at the foot of the mountains. Krone pride themselves on combining traditional techniques and innovative practices to ensure that they produce the finest sparkling and still wines using Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.
A treasured national monument, the historic farm has recently re-opened after lengthy restoration and renovations. Visitors 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 vintage Cap Classiques. Tastings are complimentary and the setting is extraordinary. The raised terrace offers singular views of the picturesque valley and the 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. For more information: Visit www.tweejongegezellen.co.za
