Wine in South Africa’s Western Cape

Indomitable mountains provide a backdrop for vast wine estates in South Africa’s Winelands. There are over 200 historic vineyard estates to tour, all within a day’s drive of Cape Town.

South Africa’s Winelands

Around Stellenbosch

1 WARWICK ESTATE

This family-run winery started life as an 18th-century farm and its bordeaux-blends are legendary. It offers an informative ‘Big Five’ wine safari (referring to grape varieties) through the vineyards, and picnics championing locally sourced produce, perfect for a lazy afternoon on Warwick’s lawns (warwickwine.com; R44 between Stellenbosch and Klapmuts; tastings £1, wine safari £2).

2 HARTENBERG ESTATE

Lounging picturesquely on the slopes of Bottelary Hills, Hartenberg is a pretty place to spend some time and produces award-winning reds, particularly shiraz. Bird-spotting, boules on the lawn, wetland walks and freside lunches make visitors linger, too. Underground cellar tours can be arranged in advance (Mon–Fri) and there’s a play area for kids (hartenbergestate.com; M23, Bottelary Rd; tastings £1).
