The Winelands is one of South Africa’s most treasured attractions and is the heart of the wine-making industry in South Africa, today recognized all over the world for its top quality and a vast variety of wines.
The beauty in this region is surreal with its vineyard-covered valleys stretching through the areas of Paarl, Stellenbosch, and Franschhoek. With over 300 wine estates to choose from, no two are alike. The region is filled with various art galleries and un-parallel mountain backdrops to numerous gardens harvesting the finest produce, olive plantations, or flowers.
The Winelands is also the gastronomical capital of South Africa, with the freshest organic harvest served from the garden to the table by some of the South African top chefs.
A glass of wine with wonderful flavor in every sip to satisfy any pallet, fresh delicious wholesome or bistro chic-style food, a taste of creamy cheese, perfectly melting pastry or delicious chocolate delights all with exquisite views over valleys and lush gardens are reason enough to visit. We at Salute Africa advice that you simply… indulge!
