Hemel en Aarde Wine Valley
The magnificent “Hemel en Aarde”/ “Heaven and Earth” wine valley is the perfect location for Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay wines. This valley is under an hour’s drive from Pringle Bay, and also offers wonderful restaurants to stop off at for lunch.
Some of the estates to visit:
Creation Wines (*try their fabulous award-winning food and wine pairing)
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards
Sumaridge Estate Wines
Hamilton Russell Vineyards
Bouchard Finlayson Winery
Elgin & Botriver
This relatively young wine route offers warm country hospitality incorporating historical and modern wineries, and is still relatively undiscovered. Explore the gravel roads linking Botriver to Elgin and Grabouw, venture towards Caledon and marvel at the rolling Cape landscape. We have included website links to some of these estates for your perusal so that you can plan your outing.
