Wellington Farmlands


Another agricultural gem in the Cape Winelands crown is Wellington.  The region around this growing dorpie contributes to the Cape’s fruit basket with an economy centered mostly around wine, table grapes, deciduous fruit and brandy.

It’s home to the Boland Rugby Union and many an aspiring Springbok player, while its’ other claim to fame is its’ location at the base of the scenic Bain’s Kloof Pass, one of South Africa’s oldest mountain passes.

Only 45 minutes from Cape Town, the drive through the surrounding farmlands is an experience in itself.
