300+ Wine Estates To Visit in The Western Cape

Wine Estates in Stellenbosch

Here are 300+ Wine Estates to visit in the Western Cape

I’m not a huge wine drinker, but I do love visiting wine estates. I enjoy an interesting and delicious wine pairing. Wine estates offer so much more than just the normal wine tastings and wine sales these days.

Brownie points if a wine estate has a kiddie pairing as well as entertainment. And a really good cheese platter is always a bonus in my book.

All the wine estates I’ve been to so far have been stunning and the people working there are normally very friendly.

I know all the estates on this list is amazing, but I tend to go to the same ones over and over again. That’s why I decided to make this wine estate “bucket” list.

I hope to visit all of these wine estates in the Western Cape someday and find out exactly what each and every one of them has to offer.

This is my Wine Farm “Bucket” List:
