The Western Cape produces some of the finest wines in the world. Visitors to the many historic estates can meet the winemakers and order wines shipped home at discounted rates. They can also enjoy cheeses, olives and fine food in the beautiful countryside. The main wine producing regions of South Africa are nestled together in this region, and most are accessible from Cape Town on a day trip. A key route is the R62, which covers world-renowned farms in Stellenbosch, Robertson, Franschoek, and Paarl.
