The House of Krone, Tulbagh
Twee Jonge Gezellen, the estate that produces Krone, has been in the family since 1710 and the name has always been synonymous with expressions such as pioneering and ground-breaking. This is especially impressive when you consider that TJ is the oldest family farm in the pioneer district of Tulbagh and the second oldest family-owned wine estate in South Africa. Translated it means ‘Two Young Bachelors’ or ‘Two Young Companions’.
House of Krone was devised as a way of highlighting winemaker Nicky Krone’s work for the estate and to differentiate the Methode Cap Classique wines that are produced there. The wines are benchmark South African sparkling wines and reflect the care and attention that has been put into production at every step.
It should be noted that the fruit is harvested in the early hours of the morning by hand, only free-run juice is used to make these wines and remuage and disgorging happens by hand in the cellars.
