Jabulani

Welcome to

Jabulani

Vineyard & Winery

 

FREE DELIVERY OF WINE:
If you would like to buy wine, send an email to tom@jabulani.ca with your case lot order (12 bottles, mixed or not). We need an email address, a delivery address and phone number on your message. The order will be entered into our system and the order info will be emailed back to you so that you can complete your payment.


All paid orders will be safely packed and delivered to your door step. If you would like less than 12, you can arrange a parking lot pick up.

NOTE: Delivery areas will be Richmond, Munster, North Gower, Stittsville, Barrhaven, Carleton Place, Almont, Ashton, Manotick and Kanata. If you are outside the free delivery area, you can arrange pickup in our parking lot. Pop the trunk and we will place your order in your vehicle.


As we prepare to open for our tenth season, we are finding new ways to help you enjoy Jabulani wines while still complying with the Covid 19 restrictions . We thank you very much for continuing to order wine for delivery and pickup, but now that the warmer weather is here, we'd like to offer an additional service.

TASTING PATIO NOW OPEN SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS:

 

Following the announcement by the Ontario government that within the constraints of health and safety regulations we can re-open to a capacity limitation of 30%, we have set up online arrangements for customers to reserve a table for up to 5 people on our tasting patio. Guests without reservations / walk ins will not be permitted. The reservations are set at one hour time slots per group of up to 5. Sorry, we are not accommodating tables of 10 guests at this time though you can book 2 tables which places groups of 5 people 6 feet apart.

 

Please do not bring any food/picnics to the patio as it increases our risks while sanitizing your table after you have left.



PLEASE, if you have a mask, please wear it when entering the retail store or the washrooms. Please have only one member of your group at a time, in the retail store. These measures will help to keep both you and our team safe.

Jabulani is a Zulu word meaning happiness or rejoice and so this is the place of happiness. It was what Tom said he was feeling as we walked the property before buying it in 2006. When we bought it, it was just a fallow field – nothing on it – but we fell in love with it all the same. Tom had been making wine since he was a teenager back in Africa and we knew we would always be making wine, just never dreamed it would be from our own grapes! Tom has used methods that he learned while visiting the wine regions of the Cape Province of South Africa near to where his grandfather lived. This seems to have given our wines a unique flavour that is favoured by our customers and wine judges alike. To date we have fifteen international awards and five Canadian championship awards, including a Double Gold for our Marquette Chete 2015, and intend on continuing to enter competitions to prove that Canadians can make world class wines.


We started planting vines in the spring of 2007 and our first harvest was in 2010. Jabulani opened its doors in 2011. It was a small venue at that time – a tasting patio with five barrels as tables and the store was run out of the bottom portion of our home.


Today we have eight different varieties of cold climate vines numbering just over 11,000 on 11 acres of the farm. We have expanded the winery to include a separate building from our home and it is there that we not only make our award winning wines but where we also host events such as weddings. There are three favourite locations on our farm where couples have chosen to have their ceremonies; by the pond behind our home, within the old orchard and the most popular has been in our crush pad. The winery can accommodate events of up to 180 people indoors and 100 people outside at our tasting patio.
