Wine Routes

Enjoy a trip along the N2 to Somerset West and take in some of the Helderberg wine farms. Drive over Sir Lowry's Pass into Grabouw, the Elgin Valley and Villiersdorp.

On your way to Villiersdorp you will encounter the Viljoens Pass and on the side exiting towards Worcester, the Rooihoogte Pass. Savour the wines from one of the fifteen wine farms in the greater Elgin area.

Then return to the N2 and traverse Houwhoek Pass and enjoy the wines from the Bot River area, where many private cellars are developing.

Join the N2 again and travel through Caledon on the R316 towards Bredasdorp, turning onto the R326 towards Stanford. Stop at Raka Wines and also Boschrivier Wine Farm, then continue over the Akkedisberg Pass to Stanford. Or alternately extend your trip to Napier and enjoy the wines of the Napier Winery and Jean Daneel Wines.

Head towards Hermanus, just 20 km away from Stanford, and enjoy the fruits of their highly rated wine farms, like Hamilton Russell and Bouchard Finlayson. Take the R320 over the Shaw's Mountain Pass, finding yourself back in the quaint town of Caledon, and head up the N2 to Kleinmond, Betty's Bay and the beautiful Clarence Drive.
