The Breede River Valley is surrounded by majestic mountains and is intensively cultivated with orchards, vineyards and wheat lands. The region offers superb views of gigantic cliffs, translucent streams and vast variety of fauna and flora species. The valley was named after the Breede (Broad) River that curves its way, snake-like, through the region.
The Breede River Valley is the largest of the three fruit- and wine-producing districts in the Western Cape. This intensively cultivated area boasts some of the top winemakers in the country and is also a leading racehorse breeding area.
The popular Route 62 passes through the region and calls at many of the valley’s finest attractions. This region has it all, from wineries and cultural tours to game reserves, art and craft centres and outdoor activities. It is a definite must-see and must-do!
