Wine Walk

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley

Wine Walks are conducted  in the now famous Hemel en Aarde Wine Valley , this is a vinicultural zone that extends 27km  north-eastwards from the whale-watching town of Hermanus along the R 320 to Caledon . Hemel- en -Aarde ( translates from the Afrikaans language as “Heaven and Earth) aptly named by early Moravian missionaries who served in the region. The  valley is divided into 3 wards each with a distinct Wine of Origin (WO) designation: The Hemel -en-Aarde Valley  ,situated closest to the sea, through the vineyards of the The Upper Hemel -en-Aarde Valley   and the furthest inland The Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. Bordered by the Babylonstoren Mountains to the north and on the south by the Kleinrivier Mountains, with the Onrust River running through the valley.
