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.
Robertson’s wide range of recreational activities ensures that the town is never completely lacking in visitors - despite its small size. Guests can lazily float down the Breede River and pick a perfect spot for a picnic, or otherwise get their blood pumping with a mountain bike or horse ride through the valley. Wine farms and an array of 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.
Guests at The Robertson Small Hotel have the option of ten bedrooms thematically divided into the Manor House, Stable and Poolside Suites. The hotel structure and décor combines Victorian and contemporary elements with crisp linens and a recognition of space. Dining at the Robertson is an undoubtedly exquisite affair. The extensive 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.
