Helderberg Wine Route
The Helderberg Wine Route is often seen as an offshoot of the more established Stellenbosch Wine Route, but this does not detract from the quality of the wine or the scenery.
The area, close to Somerset West and only 15 minutes' drive from Cape Town International Airport, is bordered by the Helderberg mountains, which make for an impressive backdrop for the more than 20 wineries along the route. The area is cooled down by soft sea breezes from the False Bay coast.
Even though this is traditionally red wine country, some cellars have also been producing excellent chardonnays and sparkling wines.
The route makes for a perfect weekend getaway, with a number of luxurious hotels and bed and breakfasts, as well excellent restaurants. Some of the region's oldest manor houses can also be found in the tranquil Helderberg.

Driving on the N2 into the city centre, you can clearly see why it’s called Lion’s Head – look to your right; Signal Hill forms the rump, the space in between the body of what could be a crouching feline.
