Manley Wines

Tulbagh was originally a relatively small white wine-producing region. It was regarded by many as the lesser cousin to the more established areas of Stellenbosch and Paarl. All that changed on September 29th, 1969 when an earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale virtually leveled the town. The town was rebuilt in the faithful style you see today, and with its rebirth came a new determination in the people of the town.

Fast forward to 1999 when Dave (Manley) Jordan along with some of the other local producers established the very first of the new farms to plant red wine grapes. Today Tulbagh is no longer in the shadows. It has become highly regarded in South Africa and abroad, emerging as a wonderful boutique region - one producing some of the most significant red wines in the Cape.

Wine Tastings

"Wine speaks to all the senses: the eyes behold the color, tone, and shade; the nose, the bouquet, the fingers and lips caress the cool crystal; the ears delight in the subtle swishing of the liquid; the tongue rejoices in the reward of a rich harvest." - Mary Lou Posch, wine lover

Manley has its own unique terroir, with very old shale soil that is perfect for red wine production.
