Western Cape Tourist AttractionsThe Helderberg Wine Route
A sub-route of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, the Helderberg route is only 15 minutes’ drive from Cape Town’s airport and is near the town of Somerset West.
These vines lie on the slopes of the Helderberg and combine the influences of both a mountain and maritime climate, producing some very unique wines.
The 30+ members of the Helderberg route follow distinctly different methods of growing grapes, from a 300-year old historical cellar to state-of-the-art boutique wineries and visiting the wide range of family-owned estates and grand manor houses is a superb weekend or day’s outing.
Popular Helderberg wineries include Vergelegen, Ken Forrester Wines at Scholtzenhof Vineyards, Morgenster Estate, Post House Cellar and many others.
For additional information about the Cape Herlderberg Region, attractions, things to do and events and festivals see Cape Helderberg Information & Attractions or, to view the individual wine estates on the Helderberg Wine Route, see Helderberg Wine Estates.
