2014 Robertson Wine Guide

Bot River

The Bot River Wine Route is symbolized by a bull – steadfast and strong, just like the wine characters in this lovely part of the world. (And a little unpredictable…) Thanks to the passion and commitment of the young winemakers who have invested their dreams in its soil, we can enjoy some of the best Shiraz, Chenin Blanc and Pinotage in the Cape.

Visitors are welcomed with enthusiasm at cellar doors and made to feel even more at home at any one of the regular events this energetic crowd put onto the calendar. Bot River has become the social life and soul of the Overberg wine scene with events such as the Barrels & Beards after harvest, the Bot River Spring celebration and the Barrel Race on Bot River station – all accompanied by great wine and delicious food.

Cellars vary from state-of-the-art to traditional, making a visit to this pocket one of the most fascinating and easily accessible, all-round wine and food experiences.

Be ready for a warm welcome and a sociable sojourn!
