Published by MapStudio
A brand new wine buyer’s guide will be launched this month, a guide that classifies South Africa’s top reds, whites, rosés, bubblies, dessert wines and ports, unique in featuring those cellars with the best track records and pin-pointing the top wine routes on the basis of reviews by the world’s top wine judges. From MapStudio, a leader as regards maps and travel publications both in print and online, My WineRoute cuts to the chase like no SA wine guide has done before.

The book showcases the country’s very best wine producers, with illustrated profiles including information about the owners and the winemakers, the farms’ history, the wines that the cellars are most famous for as well as the business hours, wine tasting fees, contact information, where they are in the winelands, plus details of where to eat and where to stay at these leading cellars, in amongst the vines.

What makes My WineRoute extra special are the detailed maps pin-pointing the location of every cellar, important landmarks and places of interest. The cartography spans all of the main wine regions, districts and wards and the maps are such that you can plan your trip according to whatever your preferences might be – scenic drives, routes according to certain wine types or varieties, day-trip itineraries including lunch venues or where to go when time is short.

My WineRoute also includes recommendations in terms of the best restaurants, B&Bs, guesthouses and hotels, the markets and picnic spots, galleries and museums – those in the countryside, on the farms. Moreover, the guide’s event calendar is useful should you want to plan a trip around one of the shows or festivals in the Cape winelands.

SEE MAP PAGE 159
With two places to visit, taste and buy – the Daljosaat cellar in the town o Paarl and the other on the northernoutskirts en route to Wellington/Malmesbury – this is a large operation shaking o its co-op image ater revamping onvarious ronts in a move to be more user- and visitor-riendly. It’s the Northern Paarl set-up that has more to oer byway o lawns and outdoor seating, being open on Saturdays (which the other premises aren’t), and incorporating theWynvlieg Cellar Theatre where many have enjoyed music concerts while dipping into their picnic baskets.Boland Cellar (or Boland Kelder as many still reer to it) has been making wine since 1947 – at least that’s when thenumerous armer shareholders in the Boland area got together to bottle the rst wine as a co-operative venture. Todaywith Bernard Smuts in charge o the winemaking, they are a company with vineyards spanning around 2200 ha in thePaardeberg, Drakenstein, Berg River as well as coastal areas and that bordering the Swartland. This is one o SouthArica’s largest wine exporters, with production roughly 1 million litres a year under Boland Cellar’s labels alone. Andincluded among their claims to ame: One region, ve climates, masterul blending.”ABOUT THE WINES:The Cappupinoccinotage delivers what you’d expect with a namelike that. The Flutterby wines provide good quang stu. And or thebest rom Boland under their Reserve and Five Climates labels, lookto the Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz.
 
OTHER ATTRACTIONS:Wynvlieg Cellar Theatre (also available as aunction venue).
 
CHILD-FRIENDLY RATING: 3/5WINE TASTINGS AND SALES:Mon to Fri 8am to 5pm,Sat 9am to 1pm (only Northern Paarltasting room), closed Sun.No tasting ee or groups o less than 10 people.Tours by appointment.At Boland Cellar’s relaxed tasting venue on the northern out-skirts o Paarl you can expect to nd traditional South Aricanhospitality and a range o wines selling at bargain prices.
