World Class Winery Holidays in the Breede River Valley
If you leave the Cape Town coastal plateau and cross the Limietberg Mountains through the breathtaking Bainskloof Pass (designed in the middle of the 19th century by a pioneering road engineer Andrew Geddes Bain) you find yourself in the beautiful Valley of Abundance, where you will also find the little towns of Wolseley and Tulbach. As a very well established wine region Tulbach has some old estates, notably what some may remember as the Twee Jonge Gezellen Estate, now better known as Krone, and a specialist in sparkling wines. Other very old traditional estates are Montpelier and Theuniskraal, while Saronsberg, Manley, Lemberg, Rijks and Waverley Hills are newer boutique wineries, with the last specialising in organic wines.

Lower Breede River Valley
If you leave the Cape Town coastal plateau over the beautiful du Toit's Kloof pass (or through the Huguenot Tunnel) you arrive in Worcester, the main town in the lower Breede (Wide) River Valley. Including the towns of Robertson, Ashton and Bonnievale, this is one of the biggest and most diverse wine growing areas. It offers a huge variety of scenery and activities and produces every variety of wine produced in South Africa. Among the well known and long established wine estates are Graham Beck, Nuy, de Wetshof, Bon Courage and Excelsior. Look out also for fine wines from the boutique wineries such as Esona, Kleinhoekkloof, Kranskop, Lord's, Mimosa, Quando, and Silverthorne, which specialises in Cap Classique sparkling wines. Rivergold produces outstanding wines and is particularly well known for its wonderful wedding venue.
