History

The Cape Winelands is a collection of historic towns and Dutch farmsteads that are known for producing top South African wines. Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl, Tulbagh, and Wellington form the backbone of the Cape Winelands, with grape cultivation that dates as far back as the 1600s. Interestingly, the wines do so well in this area as a result of the unique mountain soils. However, the influence of nearby oceans means offshore winds prevail in summer. As they say, “a vineyard that can see the sea, is a good vineyard.”
