Vindoux is not only surrounded by some of the finest wine farms in the Cape but also a mere 5km from the historical town of Tulbagh. Made famous by the restoration of Church Street following the 1969 earthquake, it is now home to the street containing the most national monuments in one street in South Africa. You will also find lovely shops, cafes, restaurants and art galleries to keep you busy!
Award Winning Wines
Steeped in history and characteristically Cape-Dutch, yet Tulbagh offers all the modern-day comforts the discerning traveler might wish for. Nature enthusiasts, adrenalin junkies, wine lovers, families and those simply seeking peace and tranquility are all catered for.
Travel back in time over 300 years… Tulbagh is the fourth oldest town in South Africa (after Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Swellendam) dating back to the early 1700s. Charming Church Street boasts the largest number of Cape Dutch, Edwardian and Victorian provincial heritage sites in one street in South Africa, all lovingly restored post the devastating earthquake of 1969.
Tulbagh also hosts various events every year. In June, the village is festooned with holly, bells, lights and tinsel as it invites visitors to celebrate Christmas in Winter; in September the Tulbagh Spring Arts Festival showcases a variety of visual and performing arts; and the valley proudly displays two of its most prized assets during the annual Tulbagh Horse & Wildflower Show.
