Divided into various regions, the Cape Winelands has something for everyone. Routes include Franschhoek, Stellenbsoch, Wellington, and Paarl. We also have the Durbanville Wine Valley, which is home to happy clay soils, pristine views and brisk Atlantic Ocean breezes, the area produces marvellous Chardonnay, Cabernet and Merlot varieties and the wine estates of Constantia is another must-see for wine lovers and nature seekers alike, surrounded by the beauty and majesty of mountains, the area is home to some of the oldest homesteads around with many still producing award-winning wines.

Stellenbosch creates some of our most acclaimed wines in the country and for a truly French-inspired route, Franschhoek, which is nestled between towering mountains in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, is a must visit. This is the food and wine heartland of the country, where splendid wines are grown and our top chefs create international cuisine.

If you feel are feeling particularly adventurous, you can even enjoy a wine tour by venturing into the winelands on a bicycle like we did and enjoy wine tasting while riding from wine far to wine farm.
