TRAVEL TO THE CAPE WINELANDS
The Western Cape's eighteen official Wine Routes and two Brandy Routes are amongst the most beautiful and scenic in the world, featuring many historic 18th century private estates which produce internationally acclaimed and award winning wines.
The Cape Winelands Route is a premier Western Cape attraction which starts within a short drive from Cape Town. The most famous regions of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl offer wine-tasting, winemaking, excellent cuisine and magnificent scenery, which collectively create an irresistible attraction for visitors. A popular activity is to combine wine-tasting with food, cheese or chocolate pairing.
If you prefer excursions other than wine-tasting, the Winelands natural beauty provides the perfect backdrop for walks, family picnics and romantic get-a-ways.
Explore the world's longest wine route. Measuring 850km, Route 62 stretches north into the Eastern Cape and provides a contrast of scenery ranging from the spectacular fynbos on the mountains of the Western Cape to the arid landscape of the Little Karoo.
