Evertsdal is ideally located very close to the world- renowned Durbanville Wine Route. Perfectly situated on the Mother City’s urban edge, it is easily accessible, but still far removed from the hub of the rat race. Durbanville is the perfect place to soak up all that it has to offer. Thus, the position of the majestic Evertsdal is indeed a bonus.
Perhaps best known for its outstanding white wines – one must sample the Sauvignon Blanc on offer – the valley also produces bespoke red wines. More recently it has also begun producing some impressive craft beer on several farms along the route.
With 13 farms on the route, there are plenty of options for those looking to discover the magic of Durbanville.
Proudly, many of these wines are exported abroad.
Visiting wine farms is a great activity enjoyed by both locals and out of towners. Most of the farms offer gorgeous restaurants with splendid views of the hills, valley and vineyards. Wine tasting is a popular activity that both the locals and out of towners enjoy. In some instances, some wine farms even offer wine pairings.
The autumn / winter seasons are the most pleasant to partake in this activity as being in a valley, it does not capture the intense summer heat. Of course, the exquisite hues of the Autumn leaves are breath taking. The entire experience has multi-sensory appeal.
One of the region’s many virtues is also the spectacular views back across the ocean towards Table Mountain. You can also dip your toes in the rivers of the nearby nature reserve on a fresh crisp morning. The region creates intense, fruit-driven, yet refined wines, as unique as the slopes they grow on, and the master wine makers who crafted them.
