One of the longest wine routes in the world exists in South Africa, forming part of the scenic Route 62 and winding its way along the mountains from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth – a more picturesque substitute to the N2 highway. Tucked away in the heart of Route 62’s Wine Route is the town of Robertson and The Robertson Small Hotel.
Float lazily down the Breede River and pick a spot for a picnic, or get your blood pumping with a mountain bike or horse ride. Wine farms and restaurants lie scattered across this part of Route 62 waiting to entice passers-by, while others can choose to pass through as they paraglide across the valley.
The Robertson Small Hotel boasts ten bedrooms divided into the Manor House, Stable and Poolside Suites. The structure and décor combines Victorian and contemporary elements with crisp linens and space. Dining is an exquisite affair. The wine cellar accompanies the gourmet menu, packed with local flavour and designed by one of South Africa’s most renowned chef personalities and restaurateur, Reuben Riffel.
