Valley of Wine and Roses
Robertson Wine Valley, less than 2 hours drive from Cape Town, was founded in 1983 and currently consists of 57 members. It is one of the Cape's best wine regions, embracing the districts of Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson.
Chardonnay, Shiraz and Méthode Cap Classique wines excel, while Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon are fast catching up. It is the home of champion wines but it is also known for its abundance of roses, making this truly 'the valley of wine and roses.'
Adorned by the beautiful Breede River, Langeberg and Riviersonderend Mountains, Robertson Wine Valley is blessed with an ideal environment of lime-rich soils and unique climate for wine growing. Cool night temperatures calcareous soils and the Breede River which runs through the valley gives the region the natural attributes needed to produce outstanding wines.
The Robertson Valley Wine Route is 54 kilometers (34 miles) long.
