The farm derives its charming name from the legendary colony of tortoises that was found in the vlei in the 1800’s. The beautiful piece of land was dubbed Skilpadvlei and has been in the hands of the Joubert family since 1917. Today, fourth generation Willie Joubert upholds the proud family tradition of harnessing the rich potential of the land with a dedicated commitment to quality. Skilpadvlei is a fully operational 78ha farm.
Skilpadvlei Wine Farm offers excellent facilities for weddings and functions with various options available for your breakfast, lunch or dinner needs. Our charming ML Joubert Hall with its beautiful surrounding garden and picturesque views can accommodate between 40 and 180 guests. Take some time to soak up the view and then feast on a Traditional South African Buffet.
Round the night off with that special someone on the dance floor. Best of all, there is NO VENUE FEE. A rarity in this day and age! And if load shedding strikes, we have a generator so the fun doesn’t have to stop when the lights go out.
