WELCOME TO THE WORCESTER WINE AND OLIVE ROUTE
Nestled in the breathtaking Breëde River Valley, the route boasts twelve wine cellars and one olive estate and offers an unforgettable experience anyone from novice to connoisseur.
Situated only 110km to 160km from Cape Town, depending on which wine cellars you include on your route, the cellars are open to the public for wine tasting and sales. Some of the cellars also have bistros and restaurants adjoining vineyards and the olive estate has a gift shop and bistro offering delicious meals, olive and olive oil tasting.
This area has produced wines for generations and is acclaimed for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc, as well as the Columbar. It prides itself on both national and international awards of distinction, contributing to about one-fifth of the national vineyards and more than a quarter of the country’s total wine and spirits production.
The Worcester area, which includes the Nuy Valley, De Doors area and R43 area, is known for value-for-money wines and olive products. Make a day trip of the route and stop in-between wine and olive tasting to enjoy the bistros and restaurants on the route, or experience the Worcester Wine & Olive Route in a weekend away and stay over at one of the beautiful guest houses situated on the route.
