The Breedekloof Wine Route has been in existence since 2002, and the Breedekloof district received Wine of Origin status in 2006. One of the Western Cape's largest wine-producing regions, the Breedekloof Wine Route is made up of 22 wineries.

Wine in this region was initially produced by co-operative cellars that focused primarily on producing sweet wines in bulk. Today individual wine growers create award winning red, dry white and sweet wine varieties and there are some 22 cellars to visit and scenery to take your breath away.

Route 62, which markets itself as the longest wine route in the world, includes the Breedekloof on its wine routes.
