Wine Farms in Hermanus

Visitors can never run out of things to do in Hermanus. The little seaside village is a famed South African holiday destination dubbed the ‘whale-watching capital of the world’ and has a dynamic variety of scenic beauty, fine restaurants, culture and ocean and land bound activities on offer. However, a visit to Hermanus wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the beautiful vineyards and wine farms in the nearby countryside. 

Hermanus has its very own wine route that begins at Benguela Cove near the Bot River. This extends into the spectacular Hemel-en-Aarde Valley on the R320 and marks the gateway into the world of Hermanus’ wine farms and wine estates. From the Wine Village, visitors can explore the Saturday morning markets stocked with fresh produce while sipping on a glass of wine. 

A popular way to experience some wine farms in Hermanus is to sign up for one of the wine tasting tours that take care of all the driving and directions for you. You’ll also get great insight into the history of the farms and their productions. For early risers, make sure to keep an eye out for brunch pairings on offer. Visitors will also be delighted to find wine and chocolate pairings and even a non-alcoholic tea and food pairing.

Complete your wine route experience with a mouth-watering lunch served outside within a fynbos garden or indoors with a cosy fire and beautiful wall art on cooler days. Menus are often crafted to highlight the taste of the wines, perfected by a top chef.

Visitors don’t necessarily need to make the excursion to the country and surrounding vineyards in Hermanus and can rather make use of the wine tasting shops and wineries set in the heart of the Wine Village. This might appeal to guests who are looking for much more casual experience than a traditional wine farm and in walking distance of other attractions like the farmer’s market on Saturdays. Enjoy a selection of handcrafted wines made passionately by family and friends sourced from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and brought to your doorstep. 

Spectacular views, friendly hospitality and top quality food and wine characterize the wine farms of Hermanus.  A visit to one of the vineyards makes for the perfect pairing for your holiday by the sea.
