A stone’s throw from the West Coast with its charming fisherman’s villages lie the vineyards of the West Coast Wine Route region.
This region astounds in the diversity of its terroir. The sheltered valley floor is ideally suited to varieties such as Colombar and Chenin blanc, while the shy-bearing noble varieties do well on the Karoo soils above the canal system.
Some vineyards are situated a mere 800 m away from the cooling influences of the Atlantic Ocean, and are perfect for the cultivation of premium quality Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir.
Every year, after the first winter rains, the landscape is transformed into a carpet of veld flowers of every imaginable hue and fragrance, attracting visitors from far and wide.
