About Worcester Wine Route

Only an hour’s drive from Cape Town, the Worcester winelands incorporate over 250 years of winemaking knowledge to produce, amongst other cultivars, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc and Columbar to national acclaim.

Did you know? The Worcester Wine Route produces close to 25% of South Africa’s total volume of wine and spirits, making it one of the most valuable wine making areas in the country.

The town of Worcester lies in the famous Breede River Valley encircled by majestic mountains and is the centre of this wine route, surrounded by wine and table grape farms.

The Worcester district is the largest in terms of winegrowing area and volume, accounting for nearly 20% of national vineyards. It produces almost 27% of South Africa’s total volume of wine and spirits and is the most important brandy producing area in the country.

The Worcester Wine Route is also the first in the world to produce a Braille wine bottle as part of the wine region’s new brand identity. A percentage of the sale of the wines - a blend of red and white - goes directly to the Institute for the Blind.
