Cape Winelands

A visit to Cape Town without visiting the famous Cape Winelands is half the experience. After Simon van der Stel turned up an unexplored valley of the Eerste River and established a town in1679, the wine industry was put on the world map and the largest collection of settler architecture in the world was left for us to visit. After a short period of time, many burghers established farms throughout this region of Paarl, Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Somerset West which is now known as the Cape Winelands, the most beautiful scenic wine area in the world with its backdrop of the Cape fold mountains. This guide highlights places to visit in this region from historical sites, wine farms, museums and other interesting places to visit. This FREE printed and downloadable guide will give you by far the best information you need when visiting the Cape Winelands.
