Route 62 (Part 1) Robertson Backpackers and Wine Tasting South Africa

About an one and a half hours drive from Cape Town on the scenic Route 62 lies the town of Robertson. Robertson is famous for breeding thoroughbred race horses and of course its many top quality wine estates. The nice thing about tasting wine in Robertson is the fact that tasting is free, unlike many other wine regions in the country. The wine estates are truely beautiful, with beautiful flaming red roses, kannas and bougainvillea lining the edges of the roads and orchards.
