Olifants River Wine Estates

Just about 200 kilometres from Cape Town, near the picturesque town of Vredendal, lie the Olifants River and its wine route. The Western Cape Province of South Africa is known for being one of the world’s best wine-producing regions, and Olifants River does not disappoint. However, it is on the opposite side of the Mother City to the Cape Winelands and, therefore, produces a different variety of wines.

This wine route extends between Citrusdal, along the river, to Lutzville Vineyards. With its exquisite combination of river and ocean views, set against the backdrop of rolling vineyards that seem to go on for miles, Olifants River Wine Route is an idyllic escape from city living as you explore the landscape and discover the flavours of some of its renowned wines. The surrounding fishing villages and sometimes-rugged terrain are almost magical in the way that they juxtapose the lush greenery of the Cape Winelands.

Some of the best known wineries along the Olifants River Wine Route include Lutzville Vineyards, Klawer Wine Cellar, Namaqua Wines, and Wilgenhof. Cellar tours and wine tastings are frequently offered by these farms, and will provide an insight into the makings of each delectable flavour and the workings of the vineyards.
