Breedekloof Wine Route, Breede River Valley
To view the individual wine estates on the Breedekloof Wine Route, see Breedekloof Wine Estates.
The youngest wine route in South Africa and just 90 km outside of Cape Town, the Breedekloof wine route lies in the Breede River Valley, which stretches from Gouda in the west, McGregor in the south, Montagu in the east and the Tankwa-Karoo National Park in the north. 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 23 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.
