De Oude Drostdy Museum, Tulbugh, Western Cape

De Oude Drostdy Museum, TulbaghDe Oude Drostdy Museum in Tulbagh is a ‘must visit’ which offers visitors a window into the past, while enjoying the very present occupation of sipping wine by candlelight, in what was once the underground slave quarters of this building. The museum, built in 1804, is a typical Cape Dutch style home, originally the magistrate’s residence, which now houses a collection of early Cape furniture, household articles and an unusual collection of gramophones. The building was designed by Cape architect, Louis Michel Thibault, and is now a national monument.

De Oude Drostdy overlooks the Drostdy-Hof wine cellar, producers of New World wines and one of South Africa’s oldest private sherry cellars. De Oude Drostdy serves as Drostdy-Hof’s spiritual home and for many visitors here, De Oude Drostdy has become synonymous with the wine label that began releasing wines in 1973.

The museum is 4km out of Tulbagh on the Winterhoek Road – follow the signs. Telephone +27 (0) 23 230 0203: Mon-Sat: 10:00-13:00 / 14:00-17:00: Sun: 14:30-17:00
