About the neighbourhood
The people in the picturesque Robertson area are warm and friendly. Wine tasting is usually offered at no charge. Viljoensdrift wine estate also offers picnic lunches to be enjoyed on board a river cruise down the Breede. Nerina offers authentic South African cuisine breakfasts, lunches & sundown dinners on board a barge. Birds Paradise has 300 cages of exotic birds and animals with a play park for the children to enjoy whilst the adults enjoy the tea room. Breakfast or partake of a low GI lunch under the pepper trees or in air conditioned luxury at neighbouring Bon Courage wine estate. Celebrate sun down at Mo & Rose whilst strolling through their extensive cactus garden.
Getting around
Contact us to arrange a wine tour. However to really explore the area it is advisable to rent a car at the airport. Due to the vastness of the country South Africa's transport system is not that convenient.
