With over 160 years of history, Robertson has grown into one of the most attractive Cape Winelands towns, with Victorian buildings, jacaranda-lined streets, vineyards banked with beautiful roses, columns of red and yellow cannas as well as bright bougainvilleas.
The Breede River winds its way through the valley, flanked by row upon row of crisp green and orange vines which leads your eye to the majestic mountains on each side. Apart from nature, the Robertson Valley also boasts impressive wines, scrumptious cuisine and the kind of country hospitality that will warm even the coldest heart.
The Robertson Valley forms part of the longest wine route in the world, Route 62. The area is blessed with limestone rich soils and a diversity of terroir where well managed vineyards are rooted. In the cellars, world class wines are handcrafted in a variety of styles. Not only are the wines full of character - but so are the winemakers. They love what they do, and it shows!
The region may be best known for its wines but the variety of attractions and activities combined with spectacular scenery and the relaxed hospitality of the people ensures visitors an unforgettable stay.
A variety of accommodation is available to suit all needs, from backpackers to 5-star hotels, guest houses, bed & breakfasts, farm accommodation and much more.
In short – Robertson is “Food for your Soul”.
