The pleasure of being a wine tourist in the Overberg lies in its diversity. Travel through the cool climate of Elgin and savour their delicious wines. Then meander down to Bot River with its drier, warmer climate and meet those rugged hearty winemakers. The Hemel-en-Aarde route outside Hermanus offers wines from a maritime climate and the valley is aptly called Heaven on Earth ... it is truly exquisite and beautiful.
The Stanford winemakers enjoy making wines in the rich soil and with an ample water supply - they are a characterful bunch! From there, you can travel further east to the Agulhas Wine Triangle.
Remote and unspoiled, with elegant, beautiful wines.
These diverse regions make up the Overberg Wine Route, each with its own distinctive terroir. So come and relax and enjoy these fabulous wines ... and stock up while you can! You can also buy online via their websites.
The year 2022 is going to be a very interesting year and the wines will continue to delight and surprise !

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.
Wine is the passport to the heart of our region and our people and the Overberg Wine Guide is the map to guide the journey. Many possibilities packaged in one easy-to-handle guide. Just the perfect companion to navigate through the pleasures of the Overberg winelands.
