About Cape Point Wine Route

It was only in 1998 that the new Cape Point Wine District was declared and the Cape Point Vineyards are still relatively new on the tourist itinerary. They were established in 1996 with the first vines on the Noordhoek wine estate, overlooking Noordhoek beach and the first Sauvignon Blanc vines were planted in 1997.

Did you know? South Africa's most popular grape variety is Chenin Blanc followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and Colombard.

The influence of the cooler breezes off the Atlantic and warmer winds from False Bay, allow the grapes to ripen slowly, producing premium quality wines. These young vines have already received awards both at home and overseas.

At the moment there are 30 hectares under vine on the Noordhoek and Scarborough sites with Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as their main focus although a recent planting at Red Hill, bordering the Cape Point Nature Reserve, means that the first red wine vineyards have joined the stable.

These promising vineyards, some of them a mere kilometre from the sea, are situated on the western edges of the Cape Peninsula. This cool-climate district is recognised for its Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Now the first red wine vineyards, planted at Red Hill bordering the Cape Point Nature Reserve, have come on stream.
