The Western Cape’s major winegrowing areas stretch from the heart of Namaqualand, north of the majestic Cederberg mountains in the north-west, to the Klein Karoo, well east of Cape Town. However, most of the twenty-four winegrowing districts and several stand-alone wards are within easy reach of Cape Town, ranging from a 20-minute drive (Constantia ward) to a two-hour journey (Robertson district).
Breedekloof - The Breedekloof district is characterized by vineyards that flourish on alluvial valley soils with adequate drainage as they rest on a bed of river stones. It covers a large proportion of the Breede River Valley and its tributaries. There are marked variations between the soils and mesoclimates in the different river valleys.
