Robertson is located in The Heart of Route 62, the longest wine route in the world which stretches all the way from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth.
Robertson enjoys a mild climate of warm summers and crisp winters, and is surrounded by famous vineyards such as Van Loveren, De Wetshof, Graham Beck and Springfield. The town’s infrastructure is well developed, with a hospital, ample shopping and sporting facilities, and both English- and Afrikaans medium schools. The Breede River and surrounding countryside provide abundant opportunities for healthy outdoor pursuits such as hiking, bird-watching and mountain-biking. The town enjoys a comparatively low crime rate and is famous for its magnificent rose gardens.
Robertson is well known for its beauty, renowned for its wines of connoisseur quality, radiant roses and thoroughbred horses. Columns of red or yellow cannas and flaming bougainvillea line the roads outside the wine estates, gardens overflow and vineyards are banked with roses, while brilliant mauve jacarandas shade the streets.
