Affectionately known as “Botriviera”, its endless fields of canola, vineyards and Blue Cranes set the scene for country hospitality at its finest. It is home to some of South Africa's most charismatic winemakers, making authentic, and very classy, world-class wines.
Winemakers in the region focus in on Chenin Blanc and Syrah, which have become synonymous with the area. Also noteworthy are Method Cap Classique, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Pinotage.
Favourite local lunch spots include Farro at Gabrielskloof, The Deli at Beaumont, and if you're looking for something very relaxed, Manny's in the little town of Botriver.
