The Piekenierskloof Pass is almost central when one considers the Wine Routes available within a short drive. One can hit out in the direction of Riebeeck Valley and enjoy the wines there, or further afield, perhaps too far but there nevertheless, is Worcester Wine Route or the Paarl Wine Route.
On theway up the N7, of course one has already passed some of the nicest wine farms in Malmesbury and Mamre.
Heading over the Piekenierskloof Pass one then reaches the Vredendal Wine Route.
The choice is yours, a difficult one at that, but it's probably a choice of where to stay to experience the most of what is on offer. Of course the answer is to stay a few nights.
