Wine estates along the Garden Route offer a sampling of an array of beautiful award winning wines in breath-taking surroundings. Plettenberg Bay (AKA the Plett Wine Route), has been classified as a “Wine of Origin” region and the route between Knysna and Plett offers some of the most beautiful wine estates in the country with sun-kissed bouquets and gourmet fare. Let’s take a look at two prominent vineyards along the Garden Route…
