In Their Words
Digger’s Home History & Location
Diggers Home Estate is situated in Tulbagh amongst the beautiful, tranquil mountain ranges. Just a 1 hour 30 min drive from Cape Town, our tasting room is surrounded by dams, mountains and vineyards.
The farm was established by a diamond miner from Kimberly in the late 1940’s and it nestles in the east facing slopes of the Obiqua Mountains. Originally a fruit and livestock farm with a small dairy, vineyards were planted by a wine maker from Sonoma County, California in 1999 and the flinty soils and terroir produce excellent quality grapes.
The current owners, David and Janet Anderson, bought the farm in 2011. The wine cellar was started in 2017 with 2018 being the first vintage to be bottled at the Estate. We look forward to welcoming you for a tasting or lunch – please note we are also dog friendly and have space for kids to play on our lawn.
