Overberg Wine Route

For those searching for an area with varied but high-quality wines, the Overberg Wine route is ideal. More of a geographical collection of routes than a specific wine varietal region, this area offers most of the classic wine varietals. The underlying soils and microclimates of the regions are so diverse, that specific varietals that do well in the regions differ dramatically. Your task is to find your own favourite region.
