Botrivier forms part of the Overberg region in the Western Cape, in an area known as the Cape Country Meander. Made up of a collection of small, medium and large towns and farming communities, such as Grabouw, Elgin, Villiersdorp, Riviersondereind, Caledon and Greyton, these towns are easily accessible as they’re situated less than 100kms away from each other. Best of all, as thriving tourist destinations themselves, they each boast their own weekly events such as food markets and their own tasting venues, giving you the opportunity to sample the flavours of this entire valley by being based in the charming town of Botrivier.
One of the main exports of the region is wine. From whimsical whites to robust reds, you can sample the delicate flavours of the grapes here, in the perfectly fermented wines.
