Your world in one place

Breedekloof Wine Routw, Western CapeThe Breedkloof Wine Route takes in the entire Breede River Valley including the towns of Worcester, Rawsonville, the Slanghoek Mountains and the famous Bain’s Kloof Pass. There are 27 wineries in the area varying from small boutique producers to large and advanced producers such as Du Toitskloof, Deetlefs and Badsberg.

The area is only an hour from Cape Town along the N1 freeway and is very popular  because of the beautiful environment, hot springs, spectacular hikes, mountain biking and birding apart from the long tradition of winemaking. The farmers in the area are very conscious of their responsibility to conserve the flora and fauna in the area.

The wines produced in the area are generally “new-world” and complex but well-balanced, many of which are exceptional from a value for money perspective. Because of the varied landscape from mountain to valley the area is able to produce a wide range of wines, ports and brandies.

There are many fine restaurants and guest houses, self catering chalets and B&Bs as well as conference venues to cater for small and large groups. Worcester is the largest town in the area.
