Overview


Head over the mountain to the lesser-known Elgin Wine Valley, this is the wine region with an organic, off-the-radar appeal. Our day of visiting farmstalls, local hotspots and estates takes us through the striking scenery of Elgin Valley: apple and pear orchards, rows of vineyards and lush flower gardens. Plantations and forests are encircled by distant mountains and interspersed with old-world Cape Dutch buildings.

Explore the artisanal products, expertly crafted ciders and wines, deli treats, and foodie delights created in this earthy region. Perhaps try one of Peregrine Farmstall’s legendary pies or stock-up on a variety of locally farmed and produced ‘take-home’ goodies. The wine shop stocks all the region’s top wines and ciders, as well as a growing selection of craft beer.

Discover the glorious flavours of Elgin, the terrains’ richness encapsulated in the fine wines and Cap Classique’s produced by the intimate family estates and boutique wineries we visit.

Depending on the time of year, meet the winemakers, experience a barrel tasting or visit the Elgin Railway Market, housed in a converted old apple warehouse and home to a steampunk station market boasting local vendors, live music (full market on Sat & Sun only). For those who are keen to avoid the tourist masses and venture off the beaten track in search of a different wine tasting experience, there are some real hidden gems to be found in the Elgin Valley and further afield, in the small village of Botrivier.
