Cape Winelands

Cape Winelands

Things to do - general

The Cape Winelands covers a relatively small area of verdant valleys and vertical mountains, about an hour east of Cape Town. Centred around the towns of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl and Wellington, this is the heart of the South African wine industry. Like the wine it’s a region best savoured rather than visited in a day trip from Cape Town. Holidays to the cape winelands should allow time not only for the local food and wine but also for the landscape itself.
