The Wine Route provides pleasant and charming relief during the winter months. Choose your mode of transport between venues: from vintage cars, luxury cruisers, water taxis, land taxis, mini-bus or use your own car. The Vaal River Meander Wine Route can be combined with luxurious stay-overs courtesy of local accommodation, visits to spas and top restaurants along the Vaal River. With so much to do, best make a weekend of it.

The route includes more than a dozen venues where guests are invited to taste wines. You can tailor your experience to suit your taste, whether you enjoy sipping wine on the patio of a luxury hotel with nothing but the sound of nature, or next to a fireplace in a cosy river pub.
