Tulbagh Wine Route


Rijk’s Wines is an estate in the Tulbagh Valley. Its story begins in 1996 when Neville Dorrington and his family decided to move to the countryside and produce their own wine. They came across 137ha that had never been cultivated. Rijks was born. The first plantings came in 1997, and the winery followed two years later. In 2010, ten years after the first harvest, all Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was removed to concentrate on the cultivars best suited to the farm: Chenin Blanc, Pinotage and Shiraz.
