African Routes : The Wine Route

 

The words of the first Governor of the Cape, Jan van Riebeeck, when he planted the very first vines, echo down the years to us: “Today, praise be to God, wine was made for the first time from Cape grapes”.
Since then the Cape’s wine industry has steadily grown in size and reputation so that Cape wines are sought after and savoured throughout the world, and each year hundreds of thousands of visitors pour into this region with its Mediterranean climate, to share in the Wine Route experience which stretches from the Constantia Valley behind Table Mountain to Stellenbosch in the Eersterivier Valley and over the Hellshoogte Mountains to Franschhoek or “French Corner”.
