The West Coast Wine Route isn’t your typical Cape wine route. Along the diverse Cape West Coast, you can be beside the sea, atop a mountain, and knee-deep in daisies all in a day. If you’re up for a tasting adventure, in a countryside that’s as complex as a fine wine's bouquet, then the West Coast wine farms will pop your cork.
On this north-western Cape wine route, Mother Nature is accorded great respect, as the number of organic wine producers and the Biodiversity Wine Initiative member estates attest. Stellar Winery is South Africa’s largest organic and Fair Trade winery and produces a “stellar” natural sweet wine from Muscat d’Alexandrie.
WWest Coast wine estates do things differently. You’ll have to make appointments to visit many of the wineries because their winemaker is off in the vineyards saving endangered tortoises, conserving succulent Karoo vegetation, harvesting by moonlight, or crushing grapes the old-fashioned way – by foot.
