African Travel Concept

Cape Winelands

The Cape's 18 official wine routes, and two brandy routes, are among the most scenic in the world, featuring many historic wine estates that date back to the 18th century. Take your time exploring this magnificent part of South Africa's Western Cape Province and indulge in award-winning wines and brandies.

The Cape Winelands, origin of some of the world's most popular wines, is a premier Western Cape visitor attraction and starts only a short drive from Cape Town. Wine tasting, winemaking tours, excellent cuisine and magnificent scenery collectively create an irresistible attraction for international and local travellers alike. A popular option is to combine wine-tastings with food, cheese or chocolate pairings. The Franschhoek Wine Valley is also famous for its food and is acknowledged as the ‘gourmet capital of South Africa'.

If you prefer activities other than wine-tasting, the winelands’ natural beauty provides the perfect backdrop for various walks, tranquil picnics and leisure excursions. Among these is the Route 62 wine route, said to be the world's longest wine route at 850km; stretching into the Eastern Cape, Route 62 provides various interesting attractions and a vast change of scenery from the lush fynbos of the Cape to the more arid landscapes of the Little Karoo
