The Hermanus Wine Route can be found along the Walker Bay Wine District’s famous R320 and meanders through the picturesque area known as the Hemel-en-Aarde Area. 

The route unites the passion and reputation of fifteen wineries, each growing small volumes of premium quality wine in carefully and sustainably managed vineyards. While these wines draw wine lovers from all over the world, the pristine shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the towering mountain ranges and fynbos-clad hills add to the attraction – to guarantee visitors to the Hermanus Wine Route a memorable experience.

La Vierge Wine Estate

La Vierge, French for ‘The Virgin’, is nestled in the folds of the breathtaking Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) close to Hermanus. Our lovingly tented vineyards are characterised by long cool summers influenced by the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean.

The unspoilt beauty and provenance of the virgin terrior are reflected in the Garden of Eden theme of their branding, suggesting a lush verdant paradise with all the purty, simplicity, innocence and temptation of life’s beginnings. This is a place of distinction, where outstanding Pint Noir wines are celebrated – wines asof desire.
