Twee Jonge Gezellen logo

The historic Twee Jonge Gezellen farm in Tulbagh is the home of Krone, a collection of notable, vintage-only South African Méthode Cap Classiques made from grapes grown and night-harvested in this distinctive terroir. Open to the public for tastings and tours, our farm is currently being restored to reflect its impressive heritage and contemporary renaissance.

Over 300 yearsof history

Est 1710

old-logo
When a pair of adventurous men founded a Tulbagh farm in 1710, the locals began to refer to it as “the farm owned by two young bachelors” - Twee Jonge Gezellen - and the name has stuck for over 300 years.

Winemaking innovation

Twee Jonge Gezellen boasts 300 years of history and the echoes of time sound through the farm’s architecture, but it has also been a site of great innovation, particularly in the recent century. It was here that cold fermentation was invented – a global first. Twee Jonge Gezellen also introduced night harvesting: harvesting the grapes under the stars to retain the coolness in the fruit. And it is the site of Africa’s first underground cellar.
