South Africa’s Cape Winelands go completely unmatched on an international scale. It has a history that is fundamental in the building of the country, and lavish accommodations surrounded by rolling green hills, all washed down with world class wines.
Vine hopping around the stellenbosch region gives you a taste of the subtle differences between each estate’s signature wines. The accommodations and activities in Franschhoek will have you investing in local property, and the cuisine will have the most respectable people licking their fingers with delight. No matter where you pitstop, the general feel of the old Cape Dutch architecture, nestled between plum trees and grapevines, is one of utter serenity.
The region has a Mediterranean climate. Summers are hot and dry and winters cool and damp, with snow on the peaks during August and September. The landscapes and vegetation hold a marvelous amount of diversity. From high mountain peaks to deep waterfalls, canyons, springs, forests, caves and many other natural features that make the Cape Winelands a natural wonder.
Don’t miss your chance to experience its unique magic.
