Paarl Wine Route

A fine example of Cape Dutch architecture on the Paarl Wine Route.

The Paarl Wine Route is home to a striking collection of award-winning wine farms.

The historic winelands town of Paarl offers a delectable wine route for visitors enjoying a luxury South Africa tour in the Cape region. The name is derived from the Dutch word for ‘pearl’ (‘parel’), a fitting description of this beautifully quaint setting. The town is distinguished by the imposing smooth facade of Paarl Rock and the sky-reaching fingers of the Afrikaanse Taalmonument (Afrikaans language monument).

Paarl is also home to the South African edition of Masterchef. The kitchen is located on the award-winning Nederburg Wine Estate. Other places of interest include the KWV Wine Emporium, with its fine pairings of Belgian chocolate and KWV brandies, and the Fairview Wine and Cheese Farm, with its delicious selection of goat’s milk and Jersey cow milk cheeses.

The Paarl Wine Route hosts numerous smaller farms that have increased in popularity over the years, such as Boland Kelder, Rhebokskloof and Mitre’s Edge. Old farms in the area include Vendome (established in 1692) and Laborie. Each farm offers exceptional tasting experiences.
