About

Welcome to

Overberg Wine

Twenty-twenty. It’s been a year unprecedented in its toughness, particularly for our region’s most treasured industry. It’s an industry that enriches the lives of wine producers and their staff as well as ours, the wine lovers. Instead of imbibing our favorite potion, we had to swallow government decrees that denied us access to our favorite elixir of life. The effects of lockdown and the follow-up restrictions on the industry are manifested in the slimness of this guide.

But we are resilient, and our default national character is to rise to the challenge and make a plan. The plan is to tempt you to quench your thirst by allowing this guide to lead you to the life-affirming places listed – the wineries, vineyards, estates, boutique wineries, wine shops – perhaps even take off on a private wine tour of the Overberg. The Overberg terroir excites wine lovers as each area’s particular characteristic results in distinctive wines that can bring pleasure to every palate.

Not only are the wines distinctive, but also the landscape. Travel (using this guide) from the cool climate of Elgin to the sunny plains of Bot River, up the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley in Hermanus with its cool maritime-kissed wines, to Stanford for a heady experience, and not to miss the flinty Agulhas plains. You’ll not have a dull moment at the wineries here in the Overberg, where you’ll find fine hospitality and meet And stock up while you can! Although 2021 will only be better . . . I can see that in the stars, and in the wine.

Just a quick note, firstly to compliment you on a wonderful Overberg Wine guide booklet.
I have a small bnb and host mostly North European guests from Sweden, Norway, Holland, Germany and France.
The guests absolutely love the Hemel en Aarde Valley wine route and we are deeply proud of it.
Your guide is always top rank and easy to pop in a handbag or travel with.
