Shiraz, Cinsault, and Grenache
Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh are the fifth generation proprietors of this family farm located in the Western Cape. In addition to wine, they grow fruit and raise cattle. Mixed agriculture was practiced from the early days and wine and brandy was made on the farm from the early 1800’s until 1947. Joostenberg was bought by the Myburgh family in 1879 and ownership has remained in the family since then. In 1947 winemaking ceased and for the following 52 years grapes were sold to the local co-op. In 1999 brothers Tyrrel and Philip resumed the winemaking tradition. Joostenberg is situated in the Muldersvlei area approximately 15km north of Stellenbosch and 15km west of Paarl. The wines carry the “Wine of Origin Paarl” designation.
