In ‘the valley of wine and roses’


Tucked away in ‘the valley of wine and roses’, romantic Robertson is the kind of small town you can’t help but fall in love with. From the bougainvillea and jacaranda trees lining its streets, to the Victorian houses dotted across the town, this little hamlet in the Robertson Valley exudes a quaint charm that will make you want to stop and explore rather than just drive right on through.

Thanks to its 50-plus wine estates and its status as a stop on South Africa’s Brandy Route, this small town has more than earned its place among the big boys of the Cape Winelands. The region is renowned for its signature dessert wines, but Robertson’s white and red wines are also exceedingly popular. Top off your wine tour with a hike on the Arangieskop trail, a visit to the valley’s successful racehorse studs, or a tour of the town’s historic buildings.

Originally a sheep-and-cattle town, Robertson turned its attention to wine-farming thanks to its unique terroir. The valley’s soil is a blend of sand and red Karoo clay and - because of the valley’s relatively dry conditions - it is also the largest area in South Africa where wine is produced under irrigation.
