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.


We have seven large double B&B rooms which are arranged around a shaded courtyard adjacent to the pool, as well as two thatched roof self-catering cottages overlooking a small dam at the end of the property.
