About Robertson Wine Route

Only 1.5 hours’ drive from Cape Town and in the heart of Route 62 - the longest wine route in the country - Robertson Wine Valley lies surrounded by majestic mountains in the Breede River Valley.

Did you know? With a minimal annual rainfall and harsh weather conditions, including hot, dry days and cold nights, wines produced in this region of lime-rich soil yield some world-class and unique tasting wines.

The Robertson wine route includes the town of Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson as well as some of South Africa’s best names such as Weltevrede, Bon Courage, De Wetshof, Rooiberg, Bon Cap and Kranskop - to name but a few.

The valley, known as the ‘valley of vines and roses’, has undergone something of a wine evolution in the last couple of decades. The region was initially best known for its dessert wines and more recently Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blancs and Cap Classiques.

A red wine project, started in the early 1990’s, however, has brought the region’s Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon to the attention of wine consumers both locally and internationally.
