Waterkloof Wine Estate

 

Gordon's Bay is a small idyllic seaside town on the Eastern edge of False Bay in the Western Cape, in the popular, picturesque region of Helderberg, and the winelands. It is well located, just 25 minutes from Cape Town Airport and 40 minutes from the famous "mother City of Cape Town". 

 

The climate is Mediterranean and boasts some of the best beaches in the Cape, beautiful white sand, rock pools, shallow paddling areas and calm seas. The area's world-famous Bikini Beach has just been awarded Blue Flag status. The sea is much warmer here than you will find at Atlantic beaches such as Clifton - and the area abounds with excellent restaurants, shopping malls and amenities.

 

Whale watching

Between June and December each year, hundreds of Southern Right whales visit the sheltered, shallow bays of the South African coastline to calve and nurture their offspring.

Many of these massive mammals visit False Bay. Official viewing points have been established: just look for the Whale Route signposts on Clarence Drive, the coastal road leading south from Gordon's Bay.

Off Sir Lowry’s Pass Road is the magnificent restaurant and wine farm of Waterkloof. The restaurant and tasting area are architectural masterpieces designed to showcase the gorgeous views from every aspect. 

The estate is committed to biodynamic farming principles and in partnership with Onderkloof and Journey’s End estates; it offers Walks for Wine, a hiking trail with tastings. Proceeds from the walks go towards conserving biodiversity and preserving the rich fynbos heritage. The estate’s European style wines can be sampled in the restaurants stylish tasting lounge.

This easy hike is a delightful adventure in a beautiful nature reserve. Follow the stream in the kloof (gully) between the mountians, past many crystal clear pools. Stop along the way to enjoy indiginous fynbos, to swim or bathe the sunshine on the rocks. Stop and turn back when you feel you have gone far enough - each spot along the way is beautiful enough to be the destination. You will feel spiritually refreshed.
