Welcome to Wellington, a unique town surrounded by massive mountains and full of friendly locals.
Steeped in history and tradition this town has a magical atmosphere that will captivate you with its people and myriad of experiences.
Situated at the foothills of the mountains, the valleys consist of immaculately manicured vineyards and fine Cape Dutch homesteads, the legacy of the town’s 17th century Huguenot origins. World-class wines and brandies from these farms together with vine nurseries are the economic mainstay of the region. Most of South Africa’s vine nurseries are found in the area, due to its excellent soil and climatic conditions.
The Wellington Wine Route and Wellington Brandy Route are major attractions offering you more than 30 fine wines and brandies.
Wellington boasts two leather factories producing beautiful and quality leather products like shoes, handbags, book covers and more. Art galleries, antique furniture, ceramic tiles and Bali furniture round off a true shopping experience in the area.
