The Breedekloof wine district boasts a total of 28 wine cellars. It includes the Rawsonville, Slanghoek, Goudini and Breerivier area. 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.
It is traditionally a wine-producing area, but peaches, prunes, pears and other crops are also grown. Tourism has become an important industry in the area with new B&B’s and guest houses providing many opportunities.
The Breedekloof wine route is the youngest wine route in South Africa. It runs from Gouda to Montagu and McGregor to Tankwa-Karoo National Park. It forms part of Route 62, the longest wine route in the world.
Soetes & Sop is an annual wine festival, typically hosted in July.
All participating cellars are open for the event. Visitors buy a ticket which includes a wine glass and soup mug which they can use at the different cellars for tastings.
