Manley Wine Estate is a boutique wine farm and private cellar situated in the beautiful countryside of the Tulbagh Valley in the Cape Winelands. The estate offers wine tastings and sales, country-style bed and breakfast as well as self-catering accommodation, conferencing facilities, and a function venue for weddings and private parties.

The estate was established by the late David Manley Jordan in 1996 and is called Manley after his middle name. Today, Manley Private Cellar is a registered, multi-award-winning wine estate.

In August 2020 Manley Wine Estate and Private Cellar were acquired by Markus Ehehalt, a former Bosch engineer from Germany with great enthusiasm for wine and deep love for the Tulbagh area. Elias Kuhl Mihopulos, also a German engineer from Bosch, became a business partner later after the purchase.

What Our Clients Have to Say

An awesome wine cellar! We had a good chat with the owner Markus & winemaker Joshua. However, the whine lady, Ria, made our day – you are a true breath of fresh air! I will highly recommend this wine cellar. We’ve been spoiled with excellent wines and an awesome personal touch. May you be blessed.

Elsabe Botha

What an awesome experience! We received top service from Ria who made it a memorable visit. The wines that we tasted were all outstanding. Our personal favourite from the Cellar Selection was the Pinotage 2018 which was a medium-bodied wine with smooth tannins.

Alison Kirsten Graney

Just experienced one of the most enjoyable wine tasting at Manley. The winemaker gave us his time with explanations and stories. We also had the privilege of comparing his bottled vs younger barreled cultivars. Well done Joshua for a memorable experience. We shall remember Manley!

Tracy Burger

Beautiful farm, lovely setting, very good wines and tasting We went to Manley's for a wine tasting. Lovely setting, beautiful to sit outside and enjoy the pretty and very neat farm. The wines were of good quality. I thought the Rose was a bit dry for me. Very friendly lady at the tasting room. The farm's cat, Shiraz was a classic; sat with us while we did the tasting. Loved every moment of it.
Absolute Peace We had the most amazing time here. Our room was neat, spacious and very cosy. The fire place was a real treat and made us relax even more. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. The Estate is absolutely beautiful! Thank you Ria and team for a wonderful stay and the birthday cake! Hope to see you again soon!

Wonderfull setting and service, but needs a lot of attention to detail Wonderfull setting, friendly staff, great food and wine, but rooms really need more attention. Old bedding, no proper space to hang clothing, blinds are worn and broken amd cant open. No warm bathmats on clay tiles for winter. With a little bit of TLC, the stay would be more cosy and encourage us to go back again. For now I would rather concider other options.
Christmas in Winter Lunch Nice lunch and vibe in the garden for Christmas in winter festival. Nice dishes on offer from the a la carte menu and the Xmas in Winter special. The tomato soup was very flavorful. Disappointed on the pretzel and Russian sausage though.
Manley for the win! Our stay at Manley Wine Estate was absolutely lovely. We booked one of the B&B units and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious and good value for money breakfast that was included in our stay. There is an restaurant on the premises where we had dinner the one night which is extremely convenient and the food was amazing! It is conveniently located close to town but also secluded enough to have a relaxing atmosphere. The farm is beautiful and we will definitely return soon!
Beautiful wine farm Manley is really worth visiting, enjoy a fantastic break away on this beautiful wine farm. The staff is very helpful and accomodating. The rooms are spacious and well equiped with a lovely fireplace! Next morning breakfast is amazing! Thank you Manley and staff!!

Not that Manley afetr all! Cramped accommodation, no space to eat indoors, cottage was not serviced. Very charming staff, lovely surrounds, but a little frayed at the edges when it came to the cottage we stayed in. Probably better for a 2 + 2 family
Lovely views and great beds Stayed in the self catering unit, and enjoyed it. The views from the stoep is really great, and the beds are extremely comfortable. Can't comment on the restaurant, but this is great value for money. Will recommend if you're in Tulbagh for a weekend stay!
Beautiful place Such a tranquil place, you are away from everything. I wish I had stayed there longer than the 1 day I spent. I will definitively visit again on a more relaxed trip. Keep up the good work and thank you again for the hospitallity.
Overnight at Manley We stayed briefly (one night), but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool was fantastic and relaxing! Aircon in the room makes a great difference as it gets hot in Tulbagh in summer. Gorgeous scenery, and friendly staff. Very close to everything in Tulbagh. Will definitely come through again!
