Savour the world-class winelands of the Cape, from the historic Constantia Valley where the first wines in South Africa were produced in 1695, to charming Stellenbosch with its similarly-long tradition of viticulture, fertile Franschoek where the vineyards bear testimony to the influence of the French Huguenots, and Paarl, which has become one of the leading wine-producing areas.

Route 62, the longest wine route in the world, traverses the Cape Boland area and offers vineyards, orchards, historical buildings, botanical gardens and world-class restaurants. You can drive or take day walks and hiking trails, go trout fishing, mountain biking or horse-riding, or simply enjoy good food and quality wine.

Recommended Establishments
We recommend renowned Le Quartier Francais, stately Franschoek Country House or the French-inspired La Residence in the Franschoek winelands – all are renowned for their world-class fine cuisine.
