Cape Winelands - Wine Tasting in the vast Vineyards

A journey through the lush Cape Winelands of the Western Cape will soon reveal why South Africa has gained an international reputation for the production of award-winning wines. Surrounded by majestic mountains and stretching from the coast to the Klein Karoo, the Cape Winelands enjoys the perfect climate and growing conditions to support its many wineries. Visitors may have a hard time choosing which of the many superb wine routes to explore.

Tucked away from the bedlam of city life, the Cape Winelands features health spas, golf courses, restaurants, nature reserves, museums, galleries, open-air theaters, art & craft shops, business hubs, conference centers and, of course, row upon row of vineyards changing colors with the seasons. Activities include hiking, game viewing, bird watching, canoeing, 4x4 trails, horseback safaris, mountain biking, abseiling, kloofing, rock pool swimming and more.

At the center of the wine producing industry is the charming town of Stellenbosch with its oak-lined avenues and white-washed Cape Dutch buildings, while the picturesque town of Ceres is the hub of the area’s thriving fruit farming industry. Bonnievale is known for its excellent cheeses and the Dwars River community is eager to share its Dwars River Escape Route with city-weary travelers. Other towns and settlements in the Cape Winelands include Franschhoek, Paarl, Wellington, Durbanville, De Doorns, McGregor, Montagu, Ashton, Robertson, Tulbagh and Wolseley – each with its own unique character and well worth visiting.
