The anything-but-ordinary wine route through the Hemel-en-Aarde Wine Valley might be short by South African standards, but at 6.7km in total, it sure packs a scenic punch. As do the handful of boutique new-age and historical wineries that pepper the Overberg route and produce some of South Africa’s most elegant wines.
The vintners of Hemel-en-Aarde are as committed to blending their personalities in their wines as they are to infusing the influence of the natural environment. The result is a collection of individual, origin-expressive wines and arguably some of the best Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that the Cape Winelands have to offer. The region also produces a plethora of mineralized Sauvignon Blancs and wonderful Pinotage and Shiraz for your drinking pleasure. This is literally Heaven on Earth!
