Wellington Wine Estates

The Wellington Wine Route is home to national and international favourites like Douglas Green Bellingham, Diemersfontein, Oude Wellington, Welbedacht, Nabygelegen Private Cellar, and Jorgensen’s Distillery. It is also a popular brandy route, with names like Wellington Cellar, Val du Charron Wines, Welgegund, and Welvanpas under its belt.

Wellington is located in a picturesque valley at the foot of the mammoth Groenberg Mountain, with the Kromme River flowing along its doorstep. Such perfect surrounds certainly make for very special scenery for even the most discriminating of wine connoisseurs. This backdrop creates a holiday vibe while only adding to the wonders of the delicious flavours.

For added convenience, the Mother City, as Cape Town is affectionately known, is only a 45-minute drive away. This implies that the other elements of the Cape Winelands (such as Paarl, Stellenbosch, Somerset West, and so on) are also within close proximity.

This area is an ideal wine-growing region owing mainly to its soils and the suitability of its climate. Grapevines are known to flourish under tough conditions, and Wellington has just the right combination of sunshine and rain to produce some really noteworthy wines and brandies. The hospitality of the locals means that visiting wine farms in Wellington becomes about making friends, delving into the wine-making process and enjoying delicious varieties together.
