About Klein Karoo Wine Route

A little surprising, perhaps - that grapes can grow in a semi-arid area - but grow they do in this region, renowned for its extremes in soils and climate. Despite the low rainfall for the area, viticulture happens in the riverine sites, kloofs and valleys of its spectacularly rugged mountains and produces some of the country’s most diverse wines.

Did you know? The Karoo is one of the most diverse wine regions in South Africa and considered an ‘undiscovered’ gem if you think that some of the country’s best ports, muscadels and brandies come from here.

Within the Little Karoo (Klein Karoo) are a number of microclimates allowing winemakers to produce a large variety of wines that include dry and fortified wines, such as South Africa’s champion Muscadel, pot-stilled brandies and a wide range of premium red and white wines.

The Little Karoo stretches from Montagu in the west to Uniondale in the east; the Langeberg Mountains form a boundary in the south, and the Cape Garden Route and the Swartberg lie to the north. Route 62 runs through the Little Karoo and includes the 16 members of this wine route.
