Riebeek Kasteel

Riebeek Kasteel

Think of it as the "other" Winelands: the Riebeek Valley has a burgeoning wine scene, with a host of independent vineyards poised to wrest the spotlight away from Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. Only an hour and 10 minutes from Cape Town, the historic burg of Riebeek Kasteel—one of the country's oldest towns—has the feel of an authentic country getaway. Head straight to the elegant Bartholomeus Klip farmhouse for a lavish lunch, then stroll along the quaint Main Street lined with a handful of home stores, chocolatiers, and cafés.
