Formerly known as the Elim Wine Route, the Cape Agulhas Wine Route winds its way from Baardskeerdersbos across an area that includes the greater Napier region. The routes cool strong south westerly and south easterly winds provide a very cool ripening season, perfect for viticulture of most wines.

While some wine farms open daily to the public, visits to others are by prior arrangement so be sure to call ahead to confirm details. 

Many of the wine farms in the Cape Agulhas Wine Route offer added conveniences such as restaurants that showcase the local cuisine.

The Cape Agulhas Wine Route includes the smaller Agulhas Wine Triangle which is an area made up of wine farms that only use grapes grown locally. Members of this exclusive route also bottle their bespoke wines locally.
