Whether it is its magnificent natural beauty, its rich cultural heritage or its world-renowned wines, the Winelands Region is synonymous with all the best that the Cape has to offer.
A 45-minute drive from Cape Town brings you to this area where splendid mountains form a dramatic backdrop to lush vineyards and gabled Cape Dutch homesteads steeped in history.
Experience the hospitality and beauty of Stellenbosch, Paarl, Wellington and Franschhoek. The diversity of the Winelands will capture every heart.
Stroll along the oak-lined streets of Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in the country where South Africa's colourful history comes to life in the splendidly restored Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian buildings. Monuments such as the Huguenot Memorial and Afrikaans Language Monument and the many outstanding museums provide a fascinating glimpse into the past.
The excellent wines produced in this area are world-renowned. You will be spoilt for choice between small, boutique wineries and the larger, more commercial wine estates. Taste the fruit of the vintner's labour in the magnificent surrounds that are so characteristic of the Winelands, or join the winemaker on a tour of his cellar where the precious harvest is lovingly transformed into every wine lover's delight.
The area is also very well known for its excellent restaurants and superb golf courses.
