The Breede River Valley is the largest fruit and wine producing valley in the Western Cape. Worcester, 103km from Cape Town via the N1, is known as the capital of the Breede River Valley. Places of interest include the Karoo National Botanical Garden, Kleinplasie Open-air Farm Museum, the Afrikaaner Museum, the Goudini Spa, the Worcester Wine Route, the Brandvlei Dam, and the KWV Brandy Distillery, the largest of its kind in the world.

Robertson, 47km from Worcester, is in a wine and fruit producing area, and is famous for roses and champion racehorses. The Robertson Wine Trust comprises Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson. The Robertson Wine Valley, previously known as the Robertson Wine Trust, was established in 1983 and today represents 34 members. This beautiful valley adorned by the Breede River and Langeberg Mountains embraces the districts Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson. Lime-rich soils and unique climate give the region the natural attributes to produce outstanding wines, particularly Chardonnay and red wine. The progressive thinking winemakers continue to experiment with cultivars and techniques. The Robertson Valley was the first Wine of Origin district (including all its wards) to be allowed to certify its own wines under the wine of origin laws.
