Worcester Wine & Olive Route

The Worcester Wine & Olive Route is a route like no other in South Africa: it has the distinction of boasting 12 excellent wine cellars and the international award-winning Willow Creek Olive Estate.

Two large festivals are held during the year, the Nuy Valley Feast in May and the BC Wines Family Festival in November. Both festivals offer exciting mountain biking competitions. During the year events such as wine, food and music shows, farm market days and general goods auctions are held at the cellars.

The cellars’ restaurants and bistros on the route are famous for their wine-and-food pairing, olive tasting, charcuterie and cheese platters. This route certainly offers a culinary experience not to be missed!

The best way to experience the route is to stay over at one of our wine estate guesthouses and enjoy some of the following activities: mountain biking trails, river boating, canoeing, fishing, 4x4 routes, wagon and tractor trails, hiking trails and horse riding.
