Making wines that embody origin is the ultimate outcome we strive for. We also respect nature and the preservation thereof; it is thus an endeavour of our team to rehabilitate the flora of this estate to that which is indigenous to the Cape, so as to maintain a balance between our natural environment and agriculture.
“One is rarely given a legacy of stature similar to that of Cordoba for safekeeping. When one receives such responsibility, you accept it graciously with both hands.
Here, high on the slopes of the Helderberg, vineyards have been nurtured with devotion and dedication for the past century or more. The outcome has been the crafting of wines with remarkable character, which are a true reflection of their origins.
As family and team it is our sole purpose to continue building on this rich legacy and to safeguard this terroir, as the custodians have done so diligently before us.”- Lorraine Oddo
“Minimal intervention is a vision we have embraced for the wines of Taaibosch. To achieve this, we have implemented the most rigorous organic principles to both our viticultural and oenological practices.
To farm organically is a culture, a disciplined way of working and a lifestyle. By achieving this, we believe we are able to stay true to the integrity of our wines, thereby giving to our patrons wines that have been made in a natural and organic way. “
- Schalk-Willem Joubert
Since the redevelopment of the Taaibosch property, a rigorous regime was adopted to clear all alien vegetation from the estate and to rehabilitate it with natural flora, indigenous to the Cape.
The Taaibosch surface area footprint consists of 55% natural flora and 45% vineyard plantings and buildings.
