Get to Know Cape Winelands

A place where scenic drives through multi-coloured winelands are interspersed with world-class wine tastings and lazy lunches overlooking the vines

Beautiful, winding roads connect the winelands and towns of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Wellington – and all an easy hour's drive from Cape Town. A myriad wine farms colour the area with sloping vineyards and almost every farm has a tasting room where travellers can enjoy a visit into the world of top-class South African wine production.

Some farms invite visitors on cellar tours for a closer look at the route taken by the grapes from vine to bottle. Others have restaurants or offer pairings of delicious, locally made cheeses and charcuterie, or even chocolate, to accompany the wines, bringing to the fore the different notes in each cultivar.
