A hidden treasure found on the doorstep on the doorstep of Cape Town (only 45 minutes drive) on the R62 and within a 30 minutes radius of other Boland towns. Nestled at the foot of the Groenberg Mountain, the town lies in a picturesque valley on the banks of the Kromme River with the majestic Hawequa Mountains as silent sentinels on the eastern border. At the foot of the mountains are the beautiful manicured vineyards and finely restored Cape Dutch homesteads, some declared national monuments. Wellington was originally a settlement of French Huguenot refugees started in 1688, and the region was known as Limiet Vallei (‘Limit Valley’). It was later changed to Wagenmakers Vallei due to a wagon building industry which developed there when the Kimberley diamond fields were discovered in 1869.
