#SAHarvest2021 in Stanford

Celebrate the Overberg’s juiciest crop and #SAHarvest2021 season with wine tastings, year-round country-style markets, festivals and grape stomping fun along the Stanford Wine Route.

Western Cape winemakers’ busy harvest season generally starts in January until late March / April. It will be a few months before the fruits of #Harvest2021 are ready to be enjoyed but visitors can enjoy wine tastings, picnics, country-style cooking and overnight stays at many of the Overberg’s award-winning estates, boutique wineries and breweries around Stanford as they patiently wait for bottling.

Launched in 2015, the Stanford Wine Route includes producers of top-quality wines and MCC, craft beer, fynbos-infused gin and grappa liqueurs.

Self-drivers can make their way to no fewer than eight member farms along the Stanford Wine Route, which begins just outside of Hermanus in the direction of Gansbaai, less than two hours from Cape Town.

Stanford Wine Route

Extend your day trip or weekend stay by combining tours of the nearby acclaimed Hermanus Wine Route, another Cape Whale Coast wine route on your way to or from Stanford.

Many of the Stanford Wine Route estate farms have expanded their offerings to include family-friendly set ups, with delicious, fresh farm-to-table produce stalls, picnic options and restaurants operating year round, against spectacular spacious outdoor backdrops.

“Stanford is cool-climate wine country, with a wide variety of soil types that enable the production of various award-winning wine styles,”

says Visit our Winelands, a wine tourism development partnership involving the Wine Tourism Industry of South Africa and Wesgro.

“… Taste the unique wines of the cool-climate terror, sample wholesome, delectable country cuisine, relax into laid-back village life and sock up the tranquil landscape, book into a wide range of accommodation, from five-star to home-from-home, and make lifelong wine friends.”
