Tyrrel & Anette Myburgh Tyrrel and Anette are the 5th generation of Myburghs on the Joostenberg farm in Paarl. They strongly believe in the fundamental importance of origin. This manifests itself in the vineyards by farming organically and often without irrigation. The winemaking philosophy avoids obtrusion as much as they deem is possible without compromising quality.
