Fodor's Review

The R44 becomes the R41 and cuts inland around the Bot River lagoon. About 10 km (6 miles) past Kleinmond is the junction with the R43. Hermanus is to the right, but take a quick detour to the left through the sleepy town of Bot River to the big, old white gates of Beaumont Wines. This is a fabulous family-run winery. It's just sufficiently scruffy to create an ambience of age and country charm without actually being untidy. But, charm aside, it's the wine you come here for, and it really is worth the detour. Beaumont produces a range of dependable, notable wines, like the juicy Pinotage and the first mourvèdre to be bottled in South Africa.
