Cape Winelands: Every Wine Lover's Dream

Experiencing South Africa’s world-renowned Cape Winelands is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that should be at the top of every wine lover’s travel list. Nestled throughout the region are wine farms and estates full of rich history and wine culture. Many of these farms and estates date back hundreds of years ago and are still thriving today.

The capital of the Winelands, Stellenbosch, is considered the country’s most famous wine route. Here, you can visit wine and fruit farms, wine cellars, and museums full of the Winelands’ cultural heritage. The summer is the region’s harvest season and is an excellent time to enjoy a morning stroll through the vineyards, picking grapes and other berries. After berry picking, tickle your taste buds with wine tastings, while enjoying the beauty and magnificence of the sprawling vineyards in the background.

Franschhoek is another famous region in the Winelands, known for being the gourmet capital of the Cape and is another excellent place to enjoy exceptional wines. A spectrum of legendary restaurants can be found throughout Franschhoek. The region’s French roots explain the large abundance of delicious French cuisine found throughout many of the award-winning restaurants in this region.
