Autumn is our favourite time in De Kelders. The days are warm and sunny, without being too hot, with an average temperature of 20 degrees C. The vineyards of the Overberg turn to burnished gold and red, and the slopes of the mountains are full of colour. Winter here is dramatic – most days the sea is wild and the wave watching is superb. This time of year is called the ‘green season’ in the Western Cape because it’s the rainy season, and the fynbos comes to life. Because of its proximity to the sea, and the warming influence of the ocean currents, the climate of the De Kelders area is mild. Frost is rare, and temperatures are not extreme. The average winter temperature is 17 degrees C, and it can rise to 25 degrees. Winter also sees the start of the whale season along the Overberg coast and is a good time to view Great White Sharks in Gansbaai.
