Worcester is one of the largest Boland towns and it goes hand in hand with wine, accompanied by a proud tradition stretching over 250 years. This verdant town offers spectacular scenery beginning at the foot of the Worcester Valley to as far down as the Hex River Valley. Lord Charles Somerset named this place after his older brother – the marquee of Worcester – when it was laid out in the farms Roodewal (red wall) and Langerug (long back) back in 1820.
How much fun can you have on a wine route? Well besides the expected offering of quality wines and hearty country food, we also throw in majestic mountains which combine with vineyards and sparkling rivers to create a natural playground offering healthy outdoor fun for mountain bikers, runners, 4x4 enthusiasts, birders and fly-fishermen.
Enjoy the best at the ten cellars and three olive estates on the Worcester Wine & Olive Route.
Open to the public for wine tasting and sales, the cellars and olive estates offer an experience for the wine lover and food connoisseur. Known for our excellent value-for-money wines and olive products Worcester boasts with nationally and internationally awards of distinction. Most of the wines are also available at the Kaap-Agri Wine Shop in High Street.
