Agulhas Wine Triangle
The Agulhas Wine Triangle is a geographical area in the Cape South Coast region comprising of wine districts Cape Agulhas and Swellendam and smaller wards such as Elim, Malgas and Napier. The western corner of the triangle begins at Lomond (Gansbaai) running through to Sijnn (Malgas) in the top eastern corner and back down to Black Oystercatcher and Strandveld in the southern corner of the triangle. It is in this exposed and rugged region where the great Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet that ancient soils have become home to the southernmost vineyards in Africa.
Breedekloof is a wine district in the Breede River Valley comprising of Rawsonville, Slanghoek, Goudini and Breede River areas. The region’s wineries range from small boutique cellars to estates and large co-ops. The west and south-west of Breedekloof borders the Slanghoek and Du Toitskloof Mountains and its north-eastern part is covered by the Hex River Mountains. Picturesque and dramatically beautiful, the wine region boats diversity – from mountain slopes, to the banks of the Breede River – which allow for many different types of cultivars to be planted, resulting in a wide range of award-winning wines produced by almost 30 wineries.
