The quality of wines from this cool, maritime climate region is legendary and the hospitality of the countryside characters has made our wine pockets some of the most desirable wine destinations in the Cape.
From the windswept coastal plains of Elim to the heights of the Elgin mountains, the climate sets the pace for slow-ripening grapes bursting with flavour and character. The diverse landscape presents winemakers with spectacularly different terroir which is translated into great wines expressing the soul of the Overberg soil.
The sea is often within sight of the cellars and rugged mountains carve slopes and valleys between towns, adding a most spectacular setting for almost every cellar door. The Overberg requires time, so come and meet the family and leave as a friend.
