2019 marks 50 years since the #TulbaghEarthquake! While Saronsberg’s winemaking history began much later in 2004, we knew we wanted to commemorate this significant event through our wines.

The Saronsberg #EarthInMotion is a beautifully balanced white blend which takes it name from the earthquake in 1969 - an event which played a key role in creating the unique soil and topography in which our vineyards are rooted today.

AN IMPORTANT DAY IN TULBAGH'S HISTORY.

It is with delight that I announce that this morning Heritage Western Cape agreed that all buildings in Church Street Tulbagh will be up-graded to Grade II Provincial heritage sites (previously Grade III Local heritage sites) and the whole street will thus be placed on the National heritage register!!

Further more, the individual historic buildings in Van der Stel Street (the Main Road and its buffer area) were also given new gradings between Grade II and III a, b and c sites of local significance. There are only a handful of buildings that were declared as not having any heritage significance and were thus un-gradable.

Finally it was the decision of the Council that the whole of central Tulbagh would be best protected by a municipal Heritage Protection Overlay Zone to be administered by Witzenberg Municipality. This decision must now be ratified by the Witzenberg Town council so that the protections become enforceable.

Oh happy day!

Below are a new selection of slides from the Fagan archive.
