Malmesbury Region Swartland Wine Route

The wineries situated close to Malmesbury, the main business centre of the Swartland, range from a private company to small privately owned cellars. Spread out over a large area, the wineries produce diverse wines due to the differing soils and climates of the area.

Although summers here are typically very hot and dry, some farms catch the cool sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean and hence have a cooler climate. Soils range from sandy (ideal for Rhone cultivars) to deep red and fertile (perfect for dry-land vineyards), while others derive from granite.
