Located on the south coast of the Western Cape, about 100kms from Cape Town, Walker Bay is one of the coolest regions in South Africa. It’s proximity to the coast gives it a maritime climate, and the “Cape Doctor” brings Antarctic breezes which cool the region further. This lengthens the ripening season, which concentrates flavour while retaining acidity. The region is centred around the town of Hermanus, which is famous for the southern right whales that are frequently seen. This, combined with the flourishing wine industry surrounding the town, has seen Walker Bay become a popular tourist destination in South Africa.
