Wine Production in
the Cape Winelands
Western Cape

Many small wine farmers have joined together to form big co-operatives, the largest being the KWV - Kooperatiewe Wijnbouers Vereeniging. Other vintners have been able to survive as family businesses and many of them are well-known overseas as well. For example, the Nederburg label goes back to the year 1792. Their top wines win medals world-wide.

South African wines are very much in demand overseas and more than 2 million cartons are exported every year.

Fleur Du CapYou can allow yourself to sample the excellent quality of the Cape wines on wine tours along the sign-posted "Wine Routes".

Most of the cellars can be visited without prior arrangement, many also have a restaurant.

Please find some excellent vintners in and around Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek you find on the INFO page.
